CONSTITUTION 



1. The Baptist State Convention shall be composed of three male 
representatives from each white Association in the State and one 
annual male representative appointed by the churches for every ten 
dollars contributed to its funds, and of such male life members as 
have been made so by the payment of thirty dollars at any one time 
to the Treasurer for the objects of the Convention. No church shall 
have more than ten representatives. No one shall be a member of 
the Convention who is not a member in good standing of a Baptist 
church in fellowship with us, and no other life member shall be 
made. 

2. The primary objects of the Convention shall be to support Chris- 
tian education in the institutions fostered by the Convention; to 
educate young men called of God to the ministry, and approved by 
the churches to which they belong; to encourage education among all 
the people of the State; to support the gospel in all the destitute 
sections of the State and of the Southern Baptist Convention; to 
send the gospel to the nations who have it not; to encourage the 
distribution and study of the Bible and a sound religious literature; 
to assist Baptist churches in the erection of suitable houses of wor- 
ship; to promote all agencies of social betterment; to encourage the 
proper care of indigent orphan children and destitute and aged 
ministers of the gospel, and to cooperate with the Southern Baptist

3. This Convention shall meet annually, on Tuesday after the first 
Sunday in December. 

4. The officers of the Convention shall be a President, three Vice- 
Presidents, a Recording Secretary and an Assistant, a Corresponding

except the Trustees (who shall serve during the pleasure of the 
Convention), shall be elected annually by direct ballot. 

5. The President shall preside and enforce order in accordance 
with Dr. Kerfoot's Parliamentary Law. One of the Vice-Presidents 
shall preside in the absence of the President. 

6. The Recording Secretary and his assistant shall record the

publish and distribute the Minutes. 

7. The Treasurer shall receive all funds represented in the Con- 
vention; make public acknowledgment of the same each week 
through the Biblical Recorder; give his bond to the Trustees; for- 
ward, at least once a month, all contributions to their destination; 
at every meeting of the Convention make a full report of his re- 
ceipts and disbursements, and, on retiring from his office, turn over

8. The Trustees shall secure and hold the title to any and all prop- 
erty belonging to, or which may be acquired by, the Convention and

take a sufficient bond of the Treasurer. The terms, conditions and 
amount of the bond shall be fixed by the Trustees, and in case the 
Treasurer shall refuse or neglect to give his bond within thirty days 
after his election, the Trustees shall have power to elect a Treasurer. 
They shall report annually to the Convention. 

9. The Auditor shall, prior to each annual meeting of the Con- 
vention, examine carefully all the receipts, disbursements, vouchers, 
papers, and books of the Treasurer, and his certificate to the facts 
in the case shall be attached to the Treasurer's report. 

10. The Corresponding Secretary shall solicit contributions to the 
objects of the Convention, assist the Board of Missions and Sunday 
Schools in the employment and payment of missionaries, and labor 
to promote the cultivation and development of Christian benevolence. 

11. The Board of Education shall foster and promote all the edu- 
cational interests of the Convention. 

12. The Board of Missions and Sunday Schools shall encourage 
the churches to give liberally to all objects of the Convention; so far 
as the means at its disposal will allow, supply all destitute portions 
of the State with faithful and efficient ministers of the gospel; give 
pecuniary aid, as far as can be secured, for building houses of wor- 
ship at proper points in the State, and in cases where pecuniary 
aid cannot be given, commend them to the beneficence of the 
churches; encourage the distribution and study of the Bible and a 
sound religious literature in the homes, in the churches, and in the 
Sunday Schools; encourage Sunday School conventions and insti- 
tutes; continue, and so far as it may be able and the growth of this 
work may require, enlarge the Baptist Book Store, and cooperate 
with the missionary and Sunday School work of the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. The board shall appoint of their number a com- 
mittee of seven, to whom shall be committed the Sunday School 
work, and the nomination for approval by the board of a Sunday 
School Secretary or secretaries to prosecute the work within the 
bounds of the Convention. The board shall also appoint three of 
their number who shall be the managers of the Baptist Book Store, 
and as may be necessary from time to time report its condition to 
the board. 

13. The board shall be appointed annually, and report to each 
session of the Convention. 

14. The Convention year shall close one week before the annual 
meeting of the body.

MINUTES OF SESSION 1911,. 13 

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF WAKE FOREST COLLEGE. 

Today's session of the Baptist State Convention is of the deepest 
interest to the Trustees of Wake Forest College. You meet for the 
day at the College in the new house of the Lord for the inauguration 
of a new educational policy. The Board through which these eighty 
years you have conducted this enterprise welcomes you here with a 
pleasure which it never had before, and a pride which, certainly in 
part, is justified by what under God, with all too meager resources, 
we have been able to accomplish. You find here in a beautiful cam- 
pus of twenty-five acres eight College buildings, with the new 
church made possible by your action adding incalculably to our 
equipment for service. The sixteen students with whom Wake 
Forest Institute began in 1834 are succeeded in 1914 by 446, eleven 
in advance of last session's enrollment; the first graduating class of 
four in 1839, by seventy-seven in 1913. You will discover that the 
increased student body is better provided for than ever before in 
its safeguarding against disease, in its physical comfort, and in its 
educational opportunity. The College Hospital with its force of 
trained nurse, orderly, and three available College physicians, while 
showing this term barely two admissions, insures to the student the 
best of care and attention. The new Dormitory just completed at a 
cost of $40,000 houses seventy-five men under model conditions, and 
the old dormitories have been transformed by the introduction of 
steam and running water. But important as these betterments are, 
the chief concern of Trustees and Faculty is the teaching and guid- 
ance of the choice young men entering the College in growing num- 
bers. Two appointments of consequence have been made to meet 
urgent needs in the teaching force— Dr. John W. Nowell, Master of 
Arts of Wake Forest and Doctor of Philosophy of Johns Hopkins, to 
the Associate Professorship of Chemistry, and Mr. Clarence D. Johns, 
graduate student of Harvard and Master of Arts of Chicago, to the 
Associate Professorship of Political Science. Professor Roger P. 
McCutcheon, Bachelor of Arts of Wake Forest and Master of Arts 
of Harvard, was called from the University of Minnesota faculty to 
conduct the department of English in the absence for a year of Dr. 
Benjamin Sledd and Associate Professor Jay B. Hubbell. 

The spiritual needs of the students are likewise recognized in the 
budget and program of the College. Ninety-two per cent of them are 
members of churches. For their religious refreshment and renewal 
and for the salvation of the remaining eight per cent a remarkable 
succession of meetings, beginning in a special Faculty meet- 
ing and extending throughout the month of November, was led by 
Dr. W. R. Cullom, of the chair of the Bible. The results must be 
far-reaching and permanent. The College chaplain, Rev. Walter N. 
Johnson, will return to his work in the College and community as 
soon as he is relieved of the collection of funds for the new church. 



14 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

During his enforced absence his pulpit has been supplied mainly by 
Dr. Charles E. Taylor and Dr. W. R. Cullom. 

The total annual budget of the College now reaches the sum of 
$62,850. Of this amount the fees paid by students cover about 40 
per cent. The remainder must be provided by the endowment. To 
say nothing of permanent improvement, enlarging patronage in- 
volves enlarging budget. Out of the urgency of this situation we 
appeal to the churches represented here to respond generously to the 
action of the Convention at the Shelby session and provide for 
Christian education in their regular contributions as one of the 
important means for bringing in the Kingdom of our Lord. 

You are asked to approve the election of T. H. King, of Mt. Airy, 
R. A. McFarland, of Scotland Neck, and W. H. Reddish, of Wades- 
boro, as Trustees, to fill vacancies on the Board. 

For the Board of Trustees of Wake Forest College. 

Wiliam Louis Poteat. 

The report of the Trustees of Meredith College was read 
by Livingston Johnson, viz. : 

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF MEREDITH COLLEGE. 

In presenting our sixteenth annual report we wish to make grate- 
ful acknowledgment of the manifest favor of our God during the 
past session and of our unfailing sympathy. Under the divine 
direction, as we trust, and by your generous support, we have en- 
deavored to move steadily forward year by year toward the high goal 
set by our founders. While our enrollment has fluctuated slightly 
the trend has been upward. This year of unprecedented financial 
disturbance, for example, shows an increase over last session, in 
spite of the fact that some twenty-five applicants for rooms last fall 
were kept at home by the sudden paralysis of business. The total 
enrollment to date is 362, representing eight other denominations 
and five other States. You will observe that this general increase 
has been maintained in spite of the loss of about ninety students by 
the successive elimination of the Business Department, the first 
eight grades, and the Department of Elocution. We could doubtless 
increase our attendance away beyond our dormitory capacity by 
issuing scholarships or granting free tuition to certain classes, as 
we should like to do; or we could accomplish the same result by 
cutting rates to meet competition, and perhaps to some extent, also, 
by lowering our standard. But the former of the last two plans 
seems to us inherently wrong, and the latter both inadvisable and 
undesirable. While we are anxious to reach as many of our young 
women as possible we do not desire numbers -at the cost of quality 
and efficiency. Moreover, while we wish to keep, and must keep, 
in contact with our academies, we must also maintain, as far as we 



MINUTES OF SESSION 191/,. 15 

can, the standard which was contemplated by the resolution of this 
Convention and by the charter of the State under which the College 
was projected. 

Many of you are already aware of the high place that has been 
assigned to Meredith by the common opinion of educational experts, 
and the rest of you will be interested to learn that this opinion has 
been recently reinforced by deliverances respectively from a profes- 
sor of Harvard University and the chairman of the Committee on 
College Standards appointed by the Southern Association of College 
Women (who lives in another State), after investigation on their 
part. In the pursuit of its present policy the college has been en- 
abled to reach this position, and we trust that under the good hand 
of God we shall continue to deserve the confidence and respect of in- 
telligent people, and at the same time to serve the best interests of 
our denomination. 

Faculty and students appear to agree in the opinion that the gen- 
eral college spirit has rarely, if ever, shown up quite so well as 
during the present session; and the student body in general are 
manifesting commendable interest in the various religious activities 
of the college. 

As announced in the last catalogue and advertised during the 
summer, four new features have been added to our regular college 
work, namely: Courses in Common School Music .and Art, to equip 
students to teach these two subjects, which Superintendent Joyner 
says are likely soon to be required of our public school teachers; 
second, an elective course in Bible Doctrines, whose purpose is to 
afford a better understanding of Baptist principles; third, a two-year 
College Course leading to a junior college diploma, which will attest 
the holder's fitness to teach in the high schools. This course covers 
the work of our freshman and sophomore years and was designed to 
meet the cases of those students who have not the time or the money 
requisite for a four-year course. Fourth, a full course leading to the 
degree of Bachelor of Science, including four years in Home Eco- 
nomics. It will be observed, therefore, that this course in Home 
Economics is no easy mark and offers no short cut to a diploma. 
And yet, the pupils have manifested such a warm appreciation of its 
advantages that more of them applied for it the first year than we 
could accommodate; so that the trustees will doubtless be asked to 
provide larger accommodations and more teaching force for this 
department next year. This work is being done in the McKee 
building, which has been refitted, furnished and equipped for the 
purpose at a cost of $2,064.68. 

In addition to these four new features we have inaugurated this 
session a series of monthly lectures on the various phases of our 
denominational work. These lectures are to be given by represent- 
atives of the several Boards, and at some good hour each month the 
whole college is called together to hear them. 



16 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

Since your last session Miss Thompson, instructor in English, and 
Miss Loomis, professor of Latin, have resigned from the college 
faculty. Miss Dickinson has resigned as head of the High School, 
and Misses Pearson, Sams, Futrell, and Robbins, from the music 
faculty. Miss Katherine Campbell Johnson, one of our own grad- 
uates, has succeeded Miss Thompson, and Miss Helen Hull Law, A.B. 
and A.M. of Vassar, succeeds Miss Loomis. Miss Katherine Parker, 
A.B. of Meredith and B.S. of Simmons, was secured to organize and 
conduct the Department of Home Economics. Miss Parker came to 
us from the United States Government College of Agriculture in 
Porto Rico, where she was assistant professor and later head of the 
Department of Home Economics. Miss Mary Parker Brown, A.B., of 
Vassar, succeeds Miss Dickinson as head of the High School. Miss 
Karen Ann Ellington Poole and Mrs. Sarah Lambeth Blalock, both 
our own graduates, have been elected as instructors in Voice and 
Piano, respectively; and Miss Edna Estelle Hall, professor of 
Piano, in place of Miss Futrell. After graduating in the Music De- 
partment of Yale University, Miss Hall studied first in the Hartford 
Conservatory, with Carlo Buonamicci, then in New York, with 
August Spanuth and Rafael Joseffy, and afterwards three years in 
Germany, with Richard Burmeister. She came to us from Olivet 
College, Michigan, where she had held the position of Music Di- 
rector. 

To succeed Miss Robbins we elected Mr. Albert Mildenberg as 
director of the Department of Piano. Mr. Mildenberg was a student 
for seven years under Joseffy, New York, and afterwards studied 
abroad under Herman, Leschetizsky, Puccini, Sgambati and Mas- 
senet. For eight or ten years he taught in Mrs. Scovill's School in 
New York during the winter and in Paris during the summer; and 
it may not be improper to state that in his first recital at Meredith, 
of which every number was his own composition, he scored a nota- 
ble triumph. 

In the Art Department we are glad to report the return of Miss 
Poteat after a year of restful travel and study abroad. 

The election of Bro. G. E. Lineberry to the presidency of Chowan 
College has deprived us for the most part of his valuable services 
as treasurer of Meredith since the first of August. And this loss, 
together with the extraordinary business depression which has 
fallen upon our country, has somewhat hindered the collection of 
notes given for our endowment. Up to this fall comparatively few 
of these notes have been left unpaid as they matured, and it is 
earnestly hoped that our brethren will do their utmost to meet 
those maturing this fall and winter, without waiting for an agent 
to call on them in person; otherwise the college must suffer a seri- 
ous and embarrassing loss. 

During the conventional year to December 1st we have collected 
on the endowment fund $33,431.11, and a total since the campaign 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 17 

began of $98,609.10. These amounts cover collections from our own 
State and also those from the General Education Board, $75,360.56 
having been paid by our own people and $23,248.54 by the General 
Education Board of New York. 

We heartily endorse the Convention's action last year in project- 
ing a movement looking towards the correlation of our Baptist 
schools on some such line as that which is to be submitted by the 
special committee appointed at its last session. 

As we were entering the chapel last commencement morning, tid- 
ings came that Bro. N. B. Broughton had died that morning in 
Philadelphia whither he had gone for a serious operation. Brother 
Broughton was a charter member of our Board, and at the time of 
his death was the only one of the original trustees appointed by the 
Convention at its session in 1889 who was still a member of the 
Board. Throughout this quarter of a century, and under the strain 
of a life abundant in labors, he served the college faithfully and 
effectively, having been for almost the whole of this period a mem- 
ber of our executive committee. He gave freely of his time, his 
means, and his valuable services, and we wish to record our sense 
of the serious loss sustained in his death by Meredith College in 
common with every other department of our denominational work. 

Prof. John R. Sampey, of the Southern Baptist Theologi- 
cal Seminary, was recognized, and felicitated himself on 
being present on this auspicious occasion. 

The report of the Board of Trustees of Chowan College 
was read by President G. E. Lineberry, viz. : 

REPORT OF CHOWAN COLLEGE. 

Early in the days of the development of our denominational work 
in the State our Baptist leaders in the old Chowan Association 
builded more wisely than perhaps they ever dreamed of, for sixty- 
seven years ago looking out over that section they decided to build 
a college for the education of their girls. This institution, as they 
designed it, was not only to develop thoroughly the mental powers 
of their girls, but was to train and develop strong Christian work- 
ers. Several of the daughters of this institution are numbered 
among the list of the mission workers to the foreign fields, but the 
greatest benefit has been felt in this eastern section, which it has 
dotted with hundreds of cultured Christian homes. Here have been 
gathered daughters from the most cultured homes of the State, 
some from the homes of wealth along with the members of others 
from the humbler walks of life, and all received alike their training 



18 N. 0. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

and inspiration for lives of greater usefulness in the Master's 
service. 

While the present administration was not able to begin work 
until a few days before the opening of the fall term, already eighty 
boarding students have been enrolled and fifteen local students, 
making a total enrollment of ninety-five. This is nearly as many 
as the school is prepared to take care of at present, and but for 
the depressed financial condition, all rooms would have been filled. 
Already several new students have engaged rooms for the spring 
term. We have had no cases of serious sickness, and we are pleased 
to note the good work and deportment of the student body and 
splendid loyalty they show to the institution. We have a faculty 
of fourteen teachers. 

More than a year ago the work of organizing Chowan Clubs be- 
gan, and the first Home-Coining Day was observed. Under the ex- 
cellent management and with the untiring work of their president, 
Miss Esther Wynne, and their secretary, Mrs. D. R. Britton, they 
have already organized many clubs, and many others are arranging 
to organize soon. These clubs arranged for their Home-Coming 
Day at the college this year on October 20th, and nearly one hun- 
dred former students were present. In addition to the many help- 
ful addresses given by the former students, the editor of the Biblical 
Recorder was present, and gave a very valuable address on Sym- 
metrical Culture. These clubs are doing much in adding valuable 
equipment and making many improvements at the college, and are 
arranging this year a loan fund to the amount of $400 to help de- 
serving young women. 

At a recent meeting of the trustees it was arranged for Dr. T. T. 
Speight, one of the best known and best loved men in this section, 
to take the field at once to arrange for the indebtedness incurred 
by the former administration. We hope for the hearty cooperation 
of the many loyal friends of this institution in freeing it from its 
indebtedness at an early date, and enable it to continue its great 
work of usefulness in training young women for lives of service. 

Submitted by request of the Board. 

G. E. Lixeberry, President. 

The report of the Board of Education was read by Secre- 
tary W. R. Oullom, viz.: 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

This is the fourteenth annual report of the Board of Education 
to be presented to this Convention by the present secretary. For 
reasons to be stated at the close of the report, a brief review may 
not be out of place. And as a preparation for this review I have 
asked Dr. W. B. Royall, the Recording Secretary of the Board, for a 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 19 

few words of reminiscence. Dr. Royall is now closing his fiftieth 
year in the capacity of Recording Secretary of the Board. He 
writes me as follows: 

"The Board of Education of the North Carolina Baptist State 
Convention held its first meeting as a distinct organization on Janu- 
ary 30, 1864. Until then the Convention had but one board, known 
as the 'Board of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.' 
At the organization of the Board of Education on January 30, 1864, 
Col. S. S. Biddle was elected president and Rev. W. T. Brooks, re- 
cording secretary. There is a sublime pathos in the fact that the 
chief business of the Board at this first meeting was that of making 
provision to raise funds for the education of children of disabled 
and deceased soldiers of the Confederacy. The second meeting of 
the Board was not held until November 9, 1S65, more than six 
months after the close of the Civil War. The members of the 
Board present at this meeting were W. M. Wingate, W. T. Walters, 
W. T. Brooks, William Royall, Jas. H. Foote and W. B. Royall. W. 
T. Brooks was elected president and W. B. Royall recording secre- 
tary. The secretary has continued to hold this position to the pres- 
ent time, so that on November 9, 1914, began his fiftieth year as a 
member and servant of the Board. For the first ten years the aver- 
age number of young ministers aided annually by the Board was 
not more than ten. Seven was as many new applicants for aid as 
were in this period received for any one year. Among those aided 
by the Board in these years of painful readjustments and slender 
purses were men whose names make luminous the pages of North 
Carolina Baptist history." 

During these fifty years such men as W. T. Walters, Chas. E. 
Taylor, John B. Carlyle, R. T. Vann, W. R. Gwaltney, and John 
Mitchell have served as Corresponding Secretaries of the Board. In 
July, 1901, the present incumbent was elected to succeed the saintly 
Dr. John Mitchell. 

Following are a few of the items to which we would call the at- 
tention of the Convention: 

1. The board at that time was $750 in debt. At the close of the 
next year the secretary borrowed $500 with which to pay the final 
board bills of its beneficiaries at commencement. At the close of 
the next year a small amount was borrowed, but since that time 
we have managed to keep a little money in the treasury and pay 
all bills when due. 

2. During the session of 1900 to 1901, the Board aided thirty-six 
young ministers. Up to the present time during the present ses- 
sion, of the eighty-nine young ministers at Wake Forest the Board 
has extended aid to seventy-seven. Of the forty-one young minis- 
ters at Louisville from North Carolina the board has aided twenty- 
five, making a total of one hundred and two (102). 

3. For the first few years of the present administration the sec- 



20 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

retary came to the Convention with his report in his pocket and 
had to ask special permission to read it. At the session of the 
Convention at Wilmington the Committee on Program was ordered 
to make a place for this report. 

4. Three times during these fourteen years this work has been 
brought to the special attention of the women of our churches — ■ 
at Elizabeth City, at Wilmington and at Goldsboro. One year ago 
a page was given in the printed report of the board on "Woman 
and the Ministry." This page is again commended to the women 
of our churches for their careful and prayerful consideration. The 
matter is of too great and too vital importance to be set aside with- 
out the most careful consideration. 

5. The Slate Loan Fund has been inaugurated and developed until 
it now amounts to nearly $3,000. Many young men have been en- 
abled to tide over emergencies through the aid of this fund. The 
name of Bro. Jas. F. Slate, of Stokes County, should not be al- 
lowed to perish among North Carolina Baptists. 

6. Just one year ago the Secretary of the Board was invited to 
Mt. Airy to talk over with an honored brother in that mountain 
city the question of a bequest to the Board. We are glad to record 
that Bro. J. K. Reynolds has very kindly arranged to give $5,000 
to the board at his death. The income from this ought to keep two 
men in college indefinitely, and the results to the work of the king- 
dom of God of sending out two well equipped preachers of the gos- 
pel for every period of four years through an indefinite time cannot 
be estimated. The man who joins our God in making a preacher 
of the gospel is joining hands with God in initiating and promot- 
ing every worthy enterprise under the sun. Brother Reynolds' 
name will not be forgotten among us. 

7. Several other good people, whose names I am not at liberty to 
use in this connection, have remembered the Board in their wills, 
and in a few years we should have some important additions to the 
permanent endowment of the Board. Can a little money be left 
where it will count more for the glory of God and for the good of 
men? 

8. During the past year Mrs. W. O. Allen, of Windsor, has given 
the Board $1,000 in cash to be invested and the income from which 
is to go into the current funds of the Board. Mrs. Allen is a daugh- 
ter of the lamented Elder Jas. S. Purefoy, whose heroic sacrifices 
saved the college to the denomination and to the kingdom of God 
at a most critical time in its history. His mantle has fallen on 
his daughter and she is wearing it worthily. The Board will ever 
hold Mrs. Allen in grateful remembrance. 

9. About ten or twelve years ago, at the urgent request of the 
First Baptist Church of Statesville, the Board extended aid to its 
first beneficiary looking toward the work of a medical missionary. 
Since that time aid has been extended to several men of this class. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 19U h 21 

So far no one of them has gone out to the foreign field, and there 
has been some doubt in the minds of at least some members of the 
Board as to the expediency of perpetuating this feature of its work. 
The Board would be glad to be instructed by the Convention at this 
point. 

10. One year ago the Convention ordered the Board to receive 
and disburse funds for our North Carolina students at tbe Southern 
Baptist Theological Seminary. Two-sevenths of the contributions 
from our churches for Ministerial Education were to be sent to 
Louisville for the Students' Fund. In accordance with this order, 
the secretary has sent to Mr. B. Pressly Smith, the treasurer of the 
Students' Fund, $1,374.06. The treasurer of the Students' Fund 
estimates that he will need during the present session $2,269 to 
meet his promise to our North Carolina men. It will be seen that 
the Seminary will need nearly $1,000 more during the coming year 
than we have sent to them during the past year. And this says 
nothing about the deficit in the payment of pledges made by North 
Carolina men prior to the beginning of our present arrangement. 

All that has been said so far has had reference to the external 
relations of the Board. If we look at the internal workings of the 
Board during the past fourteen years we think there will appear a 
correspondingly important development. For example: (1) No one 
can receive aid now who has more than one Sunday of regular 
church work; (2) any man who marries while receiving aid from 
the Board thereby disqualifies himself for receiving further help; 

(3) closer attention has been given to the matter of having money 
refunded by men who have abandoned the work of the ministry; 

(4) all ministers who receive free tuition are required to stand 
the special examination held each year by the Board, thus bringing 
all our ministerial students into close touch with the work of the 
Board; (5) the spiritual life of our young ministers at Wake Forest 
was perhaps never of a deeper and more wholesome character than 
it is today. For all these things we thank God and take courage. 

FINANCIAL. 

Our financial showing for the past year is as follows: 

Balance on hand from last year $1,394.60 

Receipts during the past year 5,468.27 

Total $6,862.87 

Paid out as per vouchers 1-241 6,496.75 

Balance on hand $366.12 

It will be seen that our balance at this time is about one thousand 
dollars less than it was one year ago, whereas the number of men 
looking to us for help is considerably larger. All business men 



22 N. 0. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

know that it is not easy now to borrow money, and if it were easy 
it is not desh-able to do the Master's business in that way. What 
are we to do then? Clearly one of two things must be done: (1) 
Either we must increase our income or (2) cut down the number 
of beneficiaries. Which shall it be? We believe there are one 
hundred churches in North Carolina that could each carry a man 
through a year and not feel it, though money matters are close 
among us. We hope as many churches as possible will make a 
liberal offering to this work during the month of January; and we 
would urge all our Sunday Schools to make an offering to the Board 
during the first month of the new year. 

THE FUTURE. 

We are anticipating that the phrase "Board of Education" will 
perhaps have a different significance among North Carolina Bap- 
tists in the future from what it has had in the past. Hitherto it 
has had reference to a group of men located at Wake Forest who 
have had charge of the special work of training our young minis- 
ters. If the plans set on foot at our last Convention should ma- 
terialize, the phrase will probably henceforth refer to a group of 
men who shall have the general oversight of all our educational 
work. Just what disposition will be made of that section of our 
work which has to do with the education of our ministers is one 
of the important questions that must engage the attention of this 
new board at the outset of its work. While the whole question is 
before us and readjustments are being made it may not be out of 
place for our Board to express the conviction that as a denomina- 
tion we are in no position to lay less stress on the necessity for 
the best training as well as for the highest character in the men 
who are to lead our churches on to larger and richer things in the 
work of the kingdom of God. On the contrary when we hear on 
every side the emphasis that is being laid on enlightenment, en- 
largement and enlistment we feel disposed to ask ourselves who is 
God's officer for inaugurating and perfecting these great move- 
ments in the churches? Is it not the pastor of the church? Secre- 
taries and general workers may and do help greatly at this point, 
but we must never get away from the fact that the pastor is the 
God-ordained man for this special work. Nor must we ever allow 
ourselves to forget that the burden of Jesus' work in inaugurating 
the kingdom was to train a small group of men who should carry 
forward this work when He had left them. Can we improve on 
Jesus' plan? In view of all this we would recommend two or three 
things: 

1. That the foundations laid by Meredith, Brooks, Walters, Win- 
gate, the Purefoys, Gwaltney, Mitchell, the Royalls, Taylor, Carlyle 
and others be built on with care until their sacrifices shall be re- 
warded and their visions realized. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 23 

2. That in the work of seeking to enlist our non-cooperative 
church members we keep in mind the fact that the pastor is the 
key-man, and that much of this work be directed toward the im- 
portant task of giving vision, intelligent grasp, training in the best 
methods, etc., to the pastors of our churches, who so much need and 
who will so much appreciate these things. A revival in a modified 
form of what we had at Wake Forest a few years ago as a Pastors' 
Course might help at this point. 

3. That the Board of Education (whatever that term may mean 
in the future) be asked to consider the advisability of inaugurating 
a course of study for the pastors of our churches on some general 
line corresponding to that now being so well conducted for and 
with our Sunday School workers. 

A WORD PERSONAL. 

In closing this report, which will probably be a transitional one, 
the Secretary begs the privilege of saying a few personal words to 
the Convention, and through the Convention to the pastors and 
churches of North Carolina: 

1. He would record his deep gratitude to God and to God's people 
that during these fourteen years no minister has been deprived of 
the help of the Board of Education except for reasons other than 
financial. 

2,. He would call attention to the fact that the care and the work 
of this Board are at least four times what they were in 1901. 

3. He would mention that his work in his Bible classes in college 
has grown in quantity and in scope until it is in itself enough for 
any one man's job. 

4. In view of these things he would express the earnest wish that, 
whatever disposition may be made of the general question of our 
educational interests, he be relieved at least from the responsibility 
of raising the money for the prosecution of this work. 

Respectfully submitted, W. R. Ctjllom, 

Corresponding Secretary. 

G. E. Lineberry read the following report on Secondary 
Schools : 

REPORT ON SECONDARY SCHOOLS. 

"We deem it unnecessary to name the schools in our correlated 
system as they are all properly enrolled in another place in our 
Minutes, and the number is the same as reported last year. We 
cannot give a full comparative report showing enrollment, value of 
property, etc., this year. We regret this very much but in response 
to a request sent to fill out blanks, as on former occasions, we re- 
ceived reports from only five institutions, as follows: Dell School, 



24 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

Fruitland Institute, Mars Hill, Round Hill Academy, and Winter- 
ville High School. These report fine progress for the year. 

In addition to the general office work and aiding in collecting 
Meredith Endowment Fund the Secretary aided in a special cam- 
paign in the Green River Association in March to relieve the in- 
debtedness on Round Hill Academy. Nearly all of the previous in- 
debtedness was arranged for, new interest aroused for the work, and 
since that they have built a large and commodious dormitory for 
boys. In May, in connection with Bro. W. R. Bradshaw, Assistant 
State Mission Secretary, a twenty days' campaign was conducted in 
Wilkes County in the interest of Mountain View School. In this 
campaign notes were taken for about twenty-five hundred dollars 
to aid in putting up an administration building. About two thou- 
sand had already been subscribed before this, and notes were se- 
cured for several of these subscriptions also. 

Owing to the resignation of the Secretary to accept the presi- 
dency of Chowan College, we have had no one in the field for this 
work for some time. And as the last Baptist State Convention de- 
cided to ask the churches to put this work on their budgets and 
has a committee appointed which is soon to report a plan for put- 
ting this work into operation, we have not deemed it wise to elect 
another secretary. 

Six years ago a resolution looking to the establishment of this 
work passed the Baptist State Convention and for a little over five 
years we have had a secretary for this work. During this time 
about $60,000 has been raised to pay on indebtedness of our second- 
ary schools and in new buildings and equipment. The schools have 
greatly strengthened their courses of study and developed their 
courses of Christian instruction, but, perhaps, the greatest help 
that has come to us from this organized work has been the interest 
and life which has been kindled in our denominational institutions. 

We are glad to turn over our work with these schools to the new 
Board, which is to be elected by this Convention, and bid them God- 
speed in developing and fostering these institutions, which mean 
so much in the training of the youths in the State, and sending 
them forth equipped for the highest service. 

Respectfully submitted, G. E. Lineberry, 

For Secondary School Board. 

The following resolution in reference to Oxford College 
was offered by B. W. Spilman and adopted: 
OXFORD COLLEGE. 

This College, founded in 1850 in response to a demand on the part 
of Baptists especially for a school in the central part of the State 
for the higher education of their daughters, has had a useful and 



MINUTES OF SESSION 19U. 25 

honorable career. It has maintained a high standard of scholarship 
and high ideals of efficiency. While it has always insisted upon 
high standards of scholarship, it has laid stress upon the develop- 
ment of character. 

Its equipment is modern and ample. It has buildings that are 
unique in their plans; only two stories high, all the work-rooms 
of every kind, class, music, studio, laboratory, etc., being on the 
first floor and all the dormitories on the second. These buildings 
have modern conveniences; electric lights, complete water system 
and hot air furnaces. The scientific apparatus for chemistry, 
physics and zoology is full. In its appointment the Music Depart- 
ment is a model. 

It confers two degrees, A.B. and B.S., and requires ten standard 
units for admission to the Freshman Class; this requirement being 
one year lower than that at Wake Forest. 

It seeks to relate education to the practical needs of girls. In 
addition to its literary course it offers courses in music, art, busi- 
ness, pedagogy and home economics, including both domestic science 
and domestic art. 

Its teachers have been secured from the standard colleges and uni- 
versities of this country and of Europe. 

It uses every means to develop the spiritual life of its pupils. It 
requires four years of Bible study with two lessons per week. It 
fosters the plans and purposes of the Y. W. C. A., and also works 
in harmony with Baptist organizations, the State Convention and 
the Southern Baptist Convention. 

It grows yearly in patronage and efficiency and it is absolutely 
loyal to Baptist principles. 

In view of its past honorable record and of its present efficiency, 

Resolved, That this Convention extends its congratulations and 
hearty good wishes to the College and to its president, who for 
thirty-five years has been at its head. 

W. L. Poteat read the following report of the Committee 
on Educational Agency, and, on motion, the discussion was 
postponed to the afternoon session : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON PLAN OF PLACING CHRISTIAN 
EDUCATION ON THE BUDGET OF THE CHURCHES. 

The committee appointed at your last session to propose a plan 
for making effective the Convention's endorsement of the principle 
of placing Christian education on the budget of the churches begs 
to submit the following recommendations: 

1. That the Convention elect a Board of Education consisting of 
the presidents of Wake Forest, Meredith and Chowan colleges, to- 



26 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

gether with fifteen other members, five of whom shall be elected for 
a term of one year, five for a term of two years, five for a term of 
three years, and the successors of each group for a term of three 
years. These fifteen members may be officially connected with insti- 
tutions in the Convention system of schools, provided that of these 
fifteen members no institution have more than one representative on 
the Board. 

2. That the existing Board of Education assisting young ministers 
and the Baptist Secondary School Board be discontinued, and all the 
educational interests fostered by the Convention, including Minis- 
terial Education, be committed to the proposed Board of Education. 

3. That the proposed Board of Education be authorized to stand- 
ardize and to admit the schools of the Convention system of schools, 
but in administrative matters stand in only an advisory relation to 
the trustees of the institutions of the system. 

4. That it be made the duty of the proposed Board of Education to 
request regular contributions for Christian education from the 
churches of the Convention, to collect all funds for the equipment 
and maintenance of Baptist institutions in North Carolina and for 
the assistance of young ministers, to disburse undesignated funds 
according to its judgment, and to apply designated funds according 
to the wishes of contributors. 

5. That the proposed Board of Education be authorized to secure 
its own Corresponding Secretary, fix his salary, and pay it out of 
funds in its control not otherwise designated. 

6. That all reports of the colleges and schools of the Convention 
system be made annually to the Convention through the proposed 
Board of Education. 

7. That the proposed Board of Education be located in Durham.

tions fostered by the Convention." Another clause was added 
to this section — "to promote all the agencies of social better- 
ment." Section 11 was changed to read: "The Board of 
Education shall foster and promote all the educational inter- 
ests of the Convention." 

The following report on the Wake Forest church was read 
by C. E. Maddry : 

Your committee has been two years trying to discharge the re- 
sponsibility in the erection of a house of worship at Wake Forest 
College placed upon it at Goldsboro by this Convention. The work 
en this building is almost done. It would have been complete but 
for the delay of some material. But enough has been done that 
the Convention can see what it is to be. It is in some respects the 
most impressive church building in the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion. It is a blending of plainness and beauty, of convenience and 
economy, of simplicity and dignity, of compactness and commo- 
diousness, of cheapness and durability. Many a building costing 
$90,000 to $100,000 does not have the beauty or convenience or size 
of this structure. This house sets a pace in Baptist architecture 
in North Carolina for years to come. It means a new day for the 
religious life of Wake Forest. 

The following is a summary of receipts to date: 

From Wake Forest, cash $8,007.16 

From Baptist State Convention, cash 12,106.50 

From outside the Convention 134.00 

Total receipts - $20,247.66 

Labor and material on the building have so far cost $47,515.34, 
and it will require $3,900 at least to finish it, making the total cost 
of the building, at the very least, $51,415.34. 

So far we have received from the Convention $12,106.50; deduct- 
ing from this amount $756.45 for interest on borrowed money and 
$698.13 for expense of collection, there is left $10,651.92 net to the 
credit of the Convention. The Convention was to raise $25,000 for 
this house; so we are still behind what we agreed to do to the 
extent of $14,349; of this amount $14,117 is money borrowed on the 
credit of the Convention. 

It is urgent that this money be raised at once. Most of it is 
due right now. If this matter is allowed to get cold in the minds 
of our people it will become a tedious task to raise it and a long 
standing debt, even on this building that appeals so deeply to us 
today, will become a denominational sore. Besides this, we need

to get our track clear so that we can go on with the erection of 
church buildings in other educational centers of the State. 
Your committee therefore recommends: 

1. That the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina ask the 
Home Mission Board to donate $5,000 to this church out of its 
Church Building Fund. 

2. That the Baptist State Convention proceed immediately to 
raise $18,000 of the $27,622 still due on this house, leaving the 
balance of something over $9,500 to be paid by Wake Forest; thus 
the Convention paying in all $28,650 and Wake Forest $17,500. This 
will preserve the ratio set by the Goldsboro Convention: $15,000 
from the Wake Forest church and $25,000 by the Baptist State Con- 
vention. 

3. That we inaugurate at once a campaign to raise in the Con- 
vention $10,000 in sixty days, taking a collection in this session of 
the Convention in cash and in pledges by churches and individuals. 

4. That a committee be appointed to have charge of this important 
matter until this whole amount — $2S,650 — is raised from the Con- 
vention and disbursed properly. 

5. That the committee in charge of this business be instructed 
to make such arrangements for the liquidation of this obligation 
of the Convention as will relieve the pastor of the Wake Forest 
church from the necessity of doing any more field work in the in- 
terest of this church building.

After a discussion of the report by C. E. Maddry and W. 
1ST. Johnson, J. A. Campbell undertook to secure from the 
Convention $10,000 in cash and subscriptions to be paid 
within the next sixty days; $7,832.50 was raised, after 
which the report was adopted. The following committee 
was appointed to continue to raise funds to liquidate the debt 
on the Wake Forest church house: C. E. Maddry, C. H. 
Durham, A. Johnson, C. W. Mitchell, and W. jST. Jones. 

The Convention adjourned for dinner in the basement of 
the church. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 29 

WEDNESDAY — Afternoon Session. 

After a short devotional meeting;, in which "Stand Up for 
Jesus" and "I Am Thine, O Lord" were sung, and K. H. 
Marsh led a prayer, J. D. Moore read the following report 
on Ministerial Education: 

MINISTERIAL EDUCATION. 

Whose duty is it to educate the preachers? Should they who are 
in need he forced to educate themselves unaided or, failing to do 
so, forfeit an education altogether? Some are positively affirmative. 
They say that charity begets a spirit of dependence in the bene- 
ficiary; that help thwarts the development of a hardihood and self- 
reliance on the part of recipients; all of which is true of common 
mendicants who are satisfied to live in squalor, but it is basely 
false in the case of young men of promise who, not begging them- 
selves, on their journey to a high destination will gratefully re- 
ceive a pittance, a morsel or a girdle from the hands of voluntary 
help, with which they may gather themselves together for a higher 
climb. 

They tell us, furthermore, that preachers are as able as others 
to get an education without help. The fact is, some of them are 
more so. But they are men of exceptional initiative and courage. 
There is an illustrious example among Southern Baptist preachers 
in which the man, with his own hands, built the house in which 
he first attended school and paid the salary of his teacher himself. 
All that would be strictly necessary in the case of such a young 
man would be to sell him an ax and turn him loose in his own 
woods! But a man like that is going to become the pastor of a 
First Baptist church somewhere. How about the men of moderate 
capacity who are to occupy the smaller, though none the less im- 
portant posts — men who cannot soar but who can drudge, who 
have not the brilliancy to scintillate but have the power to serve? 
They are men of modest, retiring natures who reflect somewhat the 
meekness of their religion and who were, in truth, thrust forth 
into the harvest as laborers but without the sickle in hand and 
dependent upon others to furnish them one. Some of our best have 
gone into the ministry who did not mean to do it! The men who 
occupy those places which are closest to the ranks must be looked 
to for information and data concerning the coming of the kingdom. 
They, who are the many, rather than their more gifted brethren, 
the few, will largely determine the state of our Southern Zion. 

It is the duty of the churches, therefore, to make it possible for 
the preachers to get an education. Preachers are the servants of 
the churches. To train them for that service is a business propo- 



30 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

sition for the churches. It is a business proposition, also, with a 
deficit involved in almost every case. It is at a loss, so far as the 
income from students is concerned, that Christian education is fur- 
nished to any. Why should a continuous expense or current sup- 
port become a stumbling block when it is considered in relation 
to the education of preachers from whose training the churches are 
to derive more direct benefits than from the Christian education of 
any other class of their members? 

It is the poor boy, usually, who is called to preach. The well-to- 
do more often choose the more lucrative callings, and, in prepara- 
tion for them, they not only have resources ready to hand on which 
to draw, but they have also those prospects ahead which constitute 
good collateral. But the ministerial students, the "sky pilots" or the 
"skys" of college parlance, ordinarily have neither a strong pecu- 
niary backing nor a promising financial future; the means at their 
command are not enough for their needs, and their calling is not 
sufficiently remunerative as to become an asset negotiable for pur- 
poses of training. 

Is it right, are we just, to expect tbat young preachers in pre- 
paring themselves for the greatest service to the churches, should 
burden themselves with obligations which afterwards oftentimes 
crush their spirits within them? Because of financial embarrass- 
ment from this cause some have suffered the drain of nervous and 
mental energy which otherwise would have been spent for kingdom 
purposes. 

The obligation to educate the ministers, therefore, rests upon the 
churches. They must provide the institutions and the means by 
which it may be done. On the other hand, our schools and colleges 
owe it to the churches to see to it that the money furnished them 
for the education of their preachers actually accomplishes that end. 
An interdenominational agency cannot train denominational forces 
properly. The college Y. M. C. A. cannot serve the best interests 
of Baptist churches in training young preachers any better than 
the International Association can do our Sunday School work for 
us. It is training in practical things around which the enthusiasm 
of a student body revolves, not the theories of science or religion. 
And it is this that determines with what measure of usefulness to 
the churches our schools shall equip our boys and girls at large. 

There is a mutual obligation between the churches and the 
schools to educate the preachers. Let the churches supply suitable 
men and enough money. Let the schools furnish a proper denomi- 
national culture and efficiency. 

We recommend: 

1. The continuance of the present method of cooperation between 
our State Board of Christian Education and the Southern Baptist 
Theological Seminary. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 31 

2. We wish to endorse the suggestions contained in Dr. Cullom's 
report of the Board of Education which contemplate a more gen- 
eral training among the active as well as prospective pastors. 

3. We recommend, furthermore, that the funds raised for min- 
isterial education become available also for the education of medical 
missionaries, on the same basis as that upon which pastors or 
evangelists receive aid. J- D. Moore.

Board in l^orth Carolina, presided during the presentation 
of Foreign Missions. Bruce Benton read the following re- 
port: 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

The entire world needs the gospel of Jesus Christ. The spirit 
of missions is the spirit of Christ. No missionary program is com- 
plete until it includes the whole world. However, Southern Bap- 
tists have extended their operations only into the following coun- 
tries: 

THE FIELDS. 

1. Papal — Argentina, Brazil, Italy, and Mexico. 

2. Pagan — Africa, China, and Japan. 

In the Papal countries there are many millions of people who 
have had the gospel given to them only partially. We should give 
them the gospel in its entirety. 

Among the pagan nations there are many more millions of people 
who have never had the gospel presented to them at all. Our pro- 
gram should seek to save and evangelize these great multitudes. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 33 

THE FORCES. 

According to reports made before the last session of the Southern 
Baptist Convention, there are 278 missionaries employed by Southern 
Baptists to prosecute this great work. This number does not in- 
clude the 635 native helpers. We now have on foreign fields 380 
churches; 339 schools with 9,376 students, including 420 students 
in theological seminaries and training schools; 12 medical mis- 
sionaries, with 8 hospitals and 13 dispensaries, having a total record 
of in-patients and out-patients amounting to 74,829. The vastness 
of the task and the inadequacy of the force employed will at once 
appeal to every thinking Christian. 

THE FINANCES. 

The contributions of Southern Baptists for 1913-14 amounted to 
$587 457 97, an advance over the previous year of $44,000. There 
was 'reported, however, a debt of about $68,000. Our North Carolina 
Baptists gave last year $56,318.50, an increase over the previous year 
of more than $3,800. The Foreign Mission Board has asked North 
Carolina Baptists this convention year to give $60,000. We can give 
this amount if we have a will to do it. 

THE FRUITS. 

During the year there have been advancements made along all 
lines despite the unsettled state of affairs in Europe and in Mexico, 
occasioned by bloody wars. The greatest advancement has been 
made in China and in Brazil. The total number of baptisms on 
foreign fields for the year reported by our missionaries amounts to 
5 252 This is the largest number ever before reported in one year. 
The largest number of baptisms reported from any one mission 
is that of 1,831, in the North China mission. Even Mexico reports 
an increased number of baptisms over the previous year. God is 
graciously blessing the feeble efforts we are putting forth to save 
these nations. The greater part of the world now seems ready to 
welcome the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. They will receive it 
if we will give it to them. 

THE FORECAST. 

All our mission fields present a most hopeful outlook. Especially 
is this true of China and Brazil. Now is our opportunity in China. 
Our civilization appeals to the Chinese mind, and with our civiliza- 
tion it is our great privilege to give them that which has made our 
civilization— our Christian religion. Both Brazil and Mexico, to the 
south of us, offer us another great opportunity. The fields in the 
former are ripe already unto the harvest. In the latter country the 
people are groping after political and religious freedom, and when 
they get the truth "the truth shall make them free indeed." 

The trend of thought the world over seems to be toward pure 
3

democracy. While attaining this ideal in government the nations 
will break away from ecclesiastical bondage, and in the entire gospel 
of Jesus Christ will they find their ideal in religion. It is our 
privilege, to say nothing of our duty, to have a part in working out 
this desired end. Bruce Bexton. 

T. W. O'Kelley, the appointee to speak on the report, 
yielded his time to J. F. Love, Home Secretary of the For- 
eign Mission Board, Richmond, Va., who spoke. D. W. Her- 
ring, a returned missionary from China and a native of this 
State, and R. M. Logan, another of our Board's missionaries 
in the Argentine Republic, spoke of the work in their fields. 

M. L. Kesler read the following report of the Board of 
Trustees of the Thomasville Baptist Orphanage : 

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THOMASVILLE BAPTIST 
ORPHANAGE. 

Our orphanage life flows on in one unbroken stream. We have 
our annual meetings but no vacations. The work may change its 
form, yet it moves ceaselessly on. In a great work all years are 
good, although they may pass with uneven step. The year just 
closing has joined the others and added its chapter to orphanage his- 
tory. We rejoice to report no death and very little serious sickness. 
It has been a year of hard and steady toil. The progress of the 
school work has been good. The ideal has not been reached but 
we are struggling up. From time to time improvements have been 
made; this year a tenth grade has been added. In our work we 
cannot draw sharp lines between what are ordinarily called the 
educational and industrial features, for each reaches out into the 
other. For the same reason we cannot separate the training work 
of the institution from the work of the church and Sunday School. 
They come out together in the final account. It has been a year of 
enlargement. The Kennedy Memorial Home has been opened. The 
first children were received there June 5th. The home was opened 
formally September 15th. There are fifty-three children there at 
present. The Miles Durham nursery is ready to receive twenty-five 
more. This will be an increase of seventy-five in one year. We have 
present now 470, making the number enrolled from the beginning 
1,558. The mere statement of this increased number of mouths to 
feed, bodies to clothe and souls to train, constitutes our definite and 
enlarged appeal. Our contributions must be increased to cover not 
only the support of this additional number, but the furnishings for 
the new buildings also. The last summer's drought cost us heavily. 
Much feed and canned vegetables that are usually made on the 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 35 

farm must be bought by money coming into the treasury. Our 
present indebtedness amounts to $15,000 in round numbers. The 
Thanksgiving offering is coming in hopefully, $7,000 last week, but 
will not meet our urgent needs. Our annual effort for a large 
Thanksgiving offering must continue to be emphasized. It is the 
one single offering from the churches, as such, asked for during the 
whole year. Thanksgiving and the one orphanage collection, "One 
day for the Orphanage," have come to mean the same thing to us. 
We could wish that the State Mission campaign might begin earlier 
and end earlier that there could not be even the appearance of a 
conflict. Both must reap at the harvest time of the year. 

We are pleased to report splendid gifts of apples and other pro- 
duce from our friends in the western end of the State. Many 
chickens and boxes of dry goods came in with the Thanksgiving 
offering. 

CHARITY AND CHILDREN. 

This organ of the institution is a most telling influence in bring- 
ing our needs and our aims before the people. The circulation has 
about reached the 18,000 mark. The war panic has caused the 
paper to suffer in its advertising department. The job work is 
holding up remarkably well. Our purpose is to work up a large 
mail order business. It is hoped that the friends of the Orphanage 
everywhere will give it a chance to do their work. 

IMPROVEMENTS. 

The improvements of the year should be noted. A model dairy 
barn has been built. The two dormitories at the Kennedy Home 
have been completed. A sewerage system has been installed at that 
place. Also a strip of forty acres of land, separating the grounds 
from the public highway, has been bought, thus forever protecting 
our front. 

The Miles Durham Nursery at Thomasville has been completed. 
Three new schoolrooms have been added to the central school 
building and all the old rooms improved and rearranged. The Dr. 
S. W. Little Memorial church, or auditorium, is under roof, and 
will be pushed to completion as rapidly as possible. A steam heat- 
ing plant has been installed for the school building and the audi- 
torium. At last we have suitable schoolrooms. 

In all our history we have never had an assembly room in which 
the children could hear and be comfortably seated. Children and 
workers alike are looking forward to sitting together in heavenly 
places when the house is completed. In no other institution is the 
inspirational need quite so great as here. We have suffered untold 
loss for lack of a suitable place for worship, song and mutual in- 
spiration. 



36 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

SOME CHANGES IN OUR WORKERS. 

Bro. Hartwell Scarborough has resigned his work at the Kennedy 
Home. A hurt received when a boy has given him trouble for the 
last few months. This led him to feel that it would be best to give 
up the work. His stay has been short and yet it covers a very im- 
portant and difficult period. A beginning has been made. He has 
done excellent work in setting the pace to the religious life of the 
institution there. 

The Sunday School organized has also enlisted a number of young 
people who did not attend any Sunday School. Mr. Scarborough 
has shown himself a high type of the unselfish Christian gentleman, 
and goes with the highest esteem of his associates in the Home. 
Rev. G. L. Merrell has been selected to superintend the Home proper. 
We have decided to take charge of the farm next year, and Mr. 
Herman Sutton, of Kinston, will take charge of it. Brother Merrill 
is well known as one of our most substantial missionary pastors. 
He is known as a builder of churches on hard fields. He comes 
to us with experience that should fit him for this work. He and 
Mrs. Merrill will occupy the Lenoir County building for boys, and 
Mrs. Merrill will be matron of that cottage. Mr. Sutton, although 
comparatively a young man, has succeeded in farming. He will live 
at the Kennedy Home. As has been .announced before, Brother 
Averitt is leaving us to take up large farming operations in Wake 
County. He has served us as treasurer and farmer for fifteen years. 
To give any sort of estimate of his work would be to write an im- 
portant chapter in the history of the Orphanage. As farmer, treas- 
urer, Sunday School superintendent, as a manager of boys and as 
representative of the Orphanage he has filled a large place in the 
life of the institution. The board cannot adequately express its ap- 
preciation of his long and splendid service. 

Mr. Fuller B. Hamrick has been elected treasurer. This will not 
seriously interfere with his work as field agent. 

Mr. C. H. Baugh, of Wake County, will take Mr. Averitt's place 
as farmer only. Mr. Baugh has had successful experience on a 
private farm and also at the State Hospital at Raleigh. 

THE LARGER ORPHANAGE. 

We have enlarged our work and still the task looms before us as 
just begun. We urge upon North Carolina Baptists that they re- 
gard the Orphanage in larger terms, as an opportunity unparalleled. 
This waiting door stands too wide for "same as last year" contribu- 
tions to ever again satisfy any working body of Baptists. 

We need large bequests but we also need large givers now while 
they live. Larger gifts and more buildings are needed, but the big 
thing, by the side of which these are trifling incidentals, is the sal- 
vation of helpless boys and girls to a larger life of service. 

But in this large view of the Orphanage it must not become the 



MINUTES OF SESSION 19U. 37 

only outlet for social service. In our day also "the widows are neg- 
lected in the daily ministration." A worthy widow in good health 
can care for her children at less cost than any institution can. A 
few dollars a month will enable her to hold her little family to- 
gether, thus leaving the room for others without such a mother. 

Also' we would call attention to the fact that there is no provision 
for helping worthy and ambitious orphans to higher schools after 
they leave the institution. This ought to appeal to individuals who 
have large means. All may not go on to higher institutions, but we 
must have a care to the finished product. 

M. L. Kesler and C. B. Waller discussed the report, after 
which the Convention adjourned. 

J. J. Hurt pronounced the benediction. 



THURSDAY — Morning Session. 

After singing "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" and 
prayer by J. S. Corpening, of Ridgeway, S. 0., the Minutes 
of the preceding meetings were read and approved. 

The following report of the Board of Missions and Sun- 
day Schools was presented by the Corresponding Secretary, 
Livingston Johnson: 

REPORT OF BOARD OF MISSIONS AND SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

We are able, by the blessings of God, to submit the best report, 
in some respects, that we have ever presented to the Convention. 
Our great denomination was never in better condition for aggres- 
sive work than it is today. Our forces are well organized and not 
a discordant note can be heard from one side of the State to the 
other. Our people maintain an unshaken faith in God and His 
word. From our pulpits the redemptive note sounds out strong 
and clear, and a distinct emphasis is being placed upon the great 
doctrines of grace. Gracious revivals have been held and a large 
number of baptisms reported. 

The year has not been without its trials and difficulties, but 
through them all the guiding hand of God has graciously led us. 

OUR DEAD. 

It is with peculiar sadness that the Board makes note of the 
death of Brother N. B. Broughton. For many years Brother Brough- 



38 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

ton was a member of the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools, 
and for several years its president. He was Recording Secretary 
of the Convention for more than thirty years, and served the de- 
nomination with faithfulness and ability in many other responsible 
positions. He was a charter member of the Board of Trustees of 
Meredith College, and was also a useful member of the Board of 
Trustees of Wake Forest College. When a Sunday School com- 
mittee, consisting of seven members of the Mission Board, was 
authorized by the Convention, he was appointed a member of the 
committee and elected as its first chairman, which position he held 
until the time of his death. 

Brother Broughton was a regular attendant upon the Convention, 
and he who in the coming years reads the Convention's history 
will find the name of N. B. Broughton occupying a conspicuous 
place. We shall miss him sadly in our denominational councils, 
and we shall ever cherish his memory. 

Three of our missionaries, Rev. C. M. Ervin, of Hickory; Rev. 
J. L. Bennett, of the Union Association, and Rev. G. W. Coppedge, 
of the Tar River Association, have been called to their rewards. 
It is rather remarkable that they all died suddenly. Brother Ben- 
nett fell dead while conducting a funeral; Brother Ervin, while 
going to an appointment, was thrown from a buggy and instantly 
killed; and Brother Coppedge was stricken with paralysis and died 
while attending the session of his association. They all died away 
from home, while about the Father's business. They were faith- 
ful servants of God, and were called fresh from their labors to 
eternal rest. 

STATE MISSIONS. 

The reports from the mission fields are the best ever submitted. 
There were 161 missionaries last year, who labored in 41 associa- 
tions. The figures this year, when compared with those of last, 
show the following increase: Baptisms 332, and by letter 327. 
Five more churches were being built and nine more completed this 
year than last. There was the following increase in contributions: 
Pastors' salary, $2,932.84; church building, $2,925.07; benevolent 
objects, $3,402.65; total, $9,260.56. The following summary gives 
in detail the work of the missionaries:

WORK IN THE WEST. 
The following report of Brother W. R. Bradshaw tells of the 
progress being made in the western section of the State: 

Report of W. R. Bradshaw. 

Western North Carolina is one of our most prosperous sections. 
Its agricultural possibilities are beginning to be appreciated. The 
soil is fertile and the farmers are learning how to get the most out 
of it. Apple culture is carried on very extensively. Cattle raising 
is very remunerative. 

The completion of the Alleghany and Elkin, the Grandin and 
Watauga and the Virginia-Carolina railroads will be the means of 
making easily accessible some of the richest territory in the west. 
Supplementary to the railroads, splendid highways are being built 
in nearly every county. 

The people as a rule have good houses in which to live; they are 
educating their children and keeping informed as to the movements 
going on in the world. 

Materially the west is making wonderful advancement, but the 

RELIGIOUS LIFE 

of this section is not keeping pace with this material development. 
There are many country churches, and some in the towns, easily 
able to give largely to the benevolent objects of the Convention 
that are doing but little more than they did ten years ago. There 
are whole associations where only a few of the churches are given 
a public opportunity to contribute to these objects. There are 



40 N. G. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

churches able to have preaching at least twice a month that con- 
tent themselves with a service once a month. While some of the 
churches are awake to their opportunities and privileges, many 
of them are not. These when awakened will become a mighty 
host in our Baptist ranks. 

GROUPING CHURCHES. 

Again, I want to call attention to the great need of grouping 
churches into fields and settling pastors among them. The one 
thing needed above everything else is for the churches to group 
themselves into a field so they can pay their pastor a salary suffi- 
cient to enable him to do pastoral work. And until this is done 
our churches here will never accomplish what they are capable 
of doing. A few fields have been formed, but by means of the 
annual call the dissatisfied have been enabled to break up most 
of them. Fields formed succeed or fail, according to the spirit of 
cooperation existing, and when the spirit of cooperation is con- 
spicuous by its absence there is not much hope of a permanent 
field. Yet pastoral support is our need and we believe the day 
will soon come when all our people will see it and provide for it. 

Below I submit the visible results of my year's work for 1914. 

MEETINGS. 

We had very little time to give to this work. There were eight 
meetings held and two hundred and thirty-two professions and 
one hundred and forty-seven additions, an average of twenty-seven 
professions and eighteen additions for each meeting. 

There seems to be a revival spirit among many of our churches. 
The hearts of the people appear to be burdened with the souls of 
men. Some of the missionaries have had good meetings on their 
fields, and many of the pastors have spoken of the splendid meet- 
ings held in their churches. This is indeed gratifying. 

INSTITUTES. 

A large part of our time has been given to this much needed 
work. Tt>ere were sixty-four institutes held in eleven counties and 
fourteen associations. In these institutes we try to learn the real 
problems of the pastors and make suggestions and give whatever 
information we can about the best methods of work, and reach 
the mind, heart and sympathy of the unenlisted. 

The eagerness with which some of the pastors and people are 
seeking information about the best plans of doing their work is 
one of the most encouraging features of our work in the west. 

ASSOCIATIONS. 

Three months have been given to this work. With very few ex- 
ceptions the associations have been better this year than we have 
ever known them. There have been large crowds of earnest men 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 41 

and women in attendance. The reports have been informing the 
speeches of the local brethren good. There was a disposition to 
emphasize all the objects of the Convention. Time was when some 
of these had a "poor show." Now it is the desire, whether they 
can do so or not, to give each object due consideration. This is 
very hopeful. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 

Assisted in the organization of four churches; helped to raise 
three thousand dollars to build new church houses; twenty-five 
hundred dollars for the Mt. View school located in Wilkes County; 
delivered 295 addresses and sermons; wrote some 400 letters and 
traveled hundreds of miles. We rejoice that in many respects this 
has been a splendid year for our work in the west. 

Respectfully submitted, w. R. Bradshaw. 



COOPERATION AND ENLISTMENT. 
Two years ago we began the work of enlistment in cooperation 
with the Home Mission Board. Rev. C. A. Upchurch was employed 
as Enlistment Field Worker. As this was a field of activity into 
which the Board had not previously entered, it was necessary to 
blaze out the way. It was difficult, at first, to secure appointments 
for Brother Upchurch as the pastors did not understand the nature 
of his work. For the past several months, however, it has been 
impossible for him to accept half the invitations extended by pas- 
tors to visit their fields. Our denominational waste is our weakest 
point. At least one-third, probably more, of our people are unen- 
hsted. Many of those who do contribute give pitiably small 
amounts. We believe that the supreme work before us now so far 
as our finances are concerned, is that of enlisting our forces in 
order to save the fearful waste that we have suffered through the 
years and are suffering today. 

This is the task we are undertaking in cooperation with the 
Home Mission Board, and the following report gives a brief state- 
ment of some of the results: 

Report of C. A. Upchurch. 
The report on cooperation and enlistment submitted one year 
ago dealt with the duties and activities of an Enlistment Field 
Worker and explained in a detailed manner the "why and how" 
of enlistment work. This report will, therefore, deal directly with 
the past years work, and will be mainly an effort, so far as figures 
can give it, to tell the amount of work done, the scope of the 
work and some of the things accomplished. 

a t terr i b + le * no ™ toTm interfered with our work twice last winter 
A drought along the northern boundary of the State hindered the 



42 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

planting of crops and cut those planted very short. The general 
depression covering the entire State made it extremely hard to 
introduce any forward-looking plans among the churches. For 
these reasons the work this year has been extremely difficult and 
the hindrances more than would be expected in an average year. 

The year has been crowded with golden opportunities for real 
aggressive organization and development work. Our churches, large 
and small, seem to be hungry for the gospel of efficiency, and are 
anxious to hear any discussion or to adopt any reasonable plan 
that has as its aim the better organization of the churches and the 
securing of the personal and financial cooperation of all their 
members. 

During the past twelve months I have worked with 127 churches, 
made 212 enlistment addresses; preached 21 sermons; made 11 
missionary addresses at Associations, Union Meetings, W. M. U. 
gatherings, etc.; have assisted in 5 associational campaigns; have 
attended 4 Associations; have participated in 19 Mission Confer- 
ences in 14 Associations; have attended the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention and the State Convention. I have organized 10 pastorates 
or fields during the year; have started 2 Mission Study Classes; 
have secured land for 3 pastoriums; have organized 11 laymen's 
teams. During the year I have traveled by rail 14,935 miles; by 
automobile and buggy about the same number of miles. I have 
written 263 letters about enlistment work; have conducted 17 every 
member canvasses and have introduced the Duplex Envelope Sys- 
tem at 23 churches; have distributed 11,950 tracts; have secured 
in subscriptions on pastors' salaries and missions the sum of 
$12,350; have collected in cash for missionary objects $512.30; have 
secured 46 subscriptions for the Home Field, 22 for the Foreign 
Mission Journal and 27 for the Biblical Recorder. 

The ten fields or pastorates which have been begun are going 
to serve in the next few years as fine demonstrations of the possi- 
bilities of enlistment work. 

The ideal plan for conducting this sort of work is for the Field 
Worker to go into an Association and do everything he possibly 
can to work out the enlistment idea in that Association. Arrange- 
ments have already been made by one Association to use the Field 
Worker's time for two or three months, beginning the first of Janu- 
ary, and tentative plans have been made with two other Associa- 
tions for work along this line later on. 

It is a source of real gratification that we can concentrate our 
efforts and reduce the loss of time and additional expense attendant 
upon having to skip from one side of the State to the other. We 
feel that more and more as our churches and pastors understand 
this work we are going to be able to make the effort, the time and 
the money expended count for the most. 

The future is full of bright promise for this work. Already 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 43 

enough applications have come for work to be done in 1915 to last 
a man two years. The improved plans of our department, the com- 
pact fields we form, the pastoriums we secure and erect, the in- 
creased interest we arouse will all serve to help our folks to 
realize their possibilities, to find their places in the kingdom and, 
above all, to learn that not only a faithful few but all of us are 
workers together with God in the highest and holiest business in 
which men were ever called to engage.

BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S UNION. 

Rev. Theo. B. Davis having resigned as Secretary of the Baptist 
Young People's Union just before the meeting of the last Conven- 
tion, the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools was instructed to 
secure the services of a suitable man for the position. Rev. J. D. 
Moore was elected with the understanding that he should give half 
his time to the B. Y. P. U. work, the other half being devoted to 
the Southern Baptist Assembly Association at Ridgecrest, N. C. 

Brother Moore's report shows that he has done some constructive 
work and is building wisely upon the foundation laid by Brother 
Davis. 

Report of J. D. Moore. 

I desire to acknowledge my indebtedness to my predecessor, Rev. 
Theo. B. Davis, whose constructive work is much in evidence in the 
present exhibit of achievements. 

According to the plan which was perfected between the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Southern Baptist Assembly and the B. Y. 
P. U. Committee of the State Mission Board, the State B. Y. P. U. 
Secretary has given his time to these two interests as equally as 
possible since the first day of March last. The two phases of work 
blend very harmoniously; in fact, in the performance of one, there 
is not infrequently a rare opportunity for labor in the other direc- 
tion. From the nature of the case, however, much the greater 
portions of the months of July and August were given directly and 
immediately to assembly management. The months following have 
accordingly been devoted more largely to the work of the young 
people. 

In the field the Secretary has visited twenty-eight churches since 
March the first in the interest of the B. Y. P. U., and has assisted, 
directly and otherwise, in the organization of twelve Unions. More 
than thirty-five hundred miles have been traveled in field work. 
The two most important phases of effort have been the Institute 
in Charlotte and the Tar River Itinerary. At Charlotte I was as- 
sisted by Secretary Arthur Flake, of Baldwyn, Miss. The meetings 
resulted in the organization of two Unions in the city, and there 



44 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

is probability tbat others will be formed later. In the Tar River 
itinerary I was accompanied and assisted by Rev. Walter M. Gil- 
more, of Louisburg. This trip resulted in the forming of three 
Unions and the discovery and strengthening of three others. 

The State Convention of Baptist young people grows in useful- 
ness and efficiency. At the last session in Raleigh there was un- 
usual interest in the work on the part of the goodly number in 
attendance. The next Convention at Mt. Airy, June 9 to 11, 1915, 
promises to excel all others in point of attendance and outreach 
of influence. 

The statistics cannot be properly tabulated. The B. Y. P. U. is 
not essentially a record maker; and yet it does make record of 
itself, but often under other than its own name and auspices. We 
are glad to report four Unions which have attained the full stand- 
ard and .are therefore A-l. These are Tabernacle of New Bern, and 
Sections A, B and C at Mars Hill College. Mars Hill has a stand- 
ing all to itself among the schools and colleges of the South, with 
the possible exception of Bessie Tift College in Georgia. Too much 
cannot be said in favor of a specific training for church work in 
our denominational schools, and in this respect Mars Hill is in 
the lead. 

According to the best information we can get there are seventy- 
six Unions in the State. This is a smaller number than was re- 
ported last year. The fact is, a great many reported at that time 
disbanded for one reason or another, although there are a few 
doubtless of which we have been unable to get an account. But 
the showing made by the seventy-six Unions exceeds all former 
records. They have more than four thousand active members, six 
hundred of whom are taking the Systematic Bible Reader's Course, 
and two hundred and twenty-five of whom have taken one or the 
other of the study courses prescribed by the Executive Committee 
of the South. It seems that not less than twenty-five per cent of 
the young people are readers of the Biblical Recorder. Eighty-five 
per cent of the Unions are organized on the group plan are using 
the B. Y. P. U. Quarterly and have every member to take part in 
the open meetings once a month or oftener. This is a fine showing 
for so great a number of organizations. 

The Biblical Recorder has kindly given us the use of a column 
for the discussion of B. Y. P. U. work and for news notes concern- 
ing it. The results promise to be helpful indeed both to the B. Y. 
P. U. interests and to the Recorder. It will stimulate an interest 
in the paper among the young people, and will aid materially in 
getting the different phases of B. Y. P. U. conditions and achieve- 
ments regularly before our people. 

There is a growing conviction on the part of our Baptist brother- 
hood that the B. Y. P. U., in its present scope and purposes, fills 
a need in our churches which has been unoccupied hitherto. The 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 45 

B. Y. P. U. has defined and found itself as a kingdom factor. The 
increasing hosts of Baptist young people are catching the vision 
of service and are vigorously reaching forward to the things which 
are before. This means that a new day is dawning for those 
churches which will harness the buoyant spirit of their young 
people and train them for efficient church membership. 

In the prosecution of the work emphasis must be placed more 
and more upon the educational features of the B. Y. P. U. The 
Bible Readers Course and the weekly meetings are the vital or- 
gans of the body; the one furnishes the material and the other 
the field for testimony. The points of contact in the field should 
be the local church and B. Y. P. U. none the less, but our denomi- 
national schools more. What Mars Hill has done others should 
do. And some of them will. 

The growth of sentiment favorable to the work, the better under- 
standing of it on the part of its supporters, the splendid achieve- 
ments already made, together with the eagerness and intelligence 
with which our young people throw themselves into the organiza- 
tion, predict a bright future for the B. Y. P. U. in North Carolina. 

J. D. Moore, 

Ridgecrest, N. C. B. Y. P. U. Secretary. 



SUNDAY SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 
The excellent report by the Sunday School Committee speaks for 
itself. This department, for several years, has been self-sustaining 
financially, and its influence is plainly seen in the improvement of 
our Sunday Schools, in the way of better equipment, better trained 
teachers, and a deeper interest in Bible study. While it would not 
be fair to give the State Sunday School Department credit for all 
this improvement it certainly has had much to do with it. 

Report of Sunday School Committee. 

As we close another year it is with gladness and sadness — the 
former because of God's blessings on the work as seen all over the 
State, the latter because death, for the first time, has invaded our 
ranks. 

For about a quarter of a century Brother N. B. Broughton, chair- 
man of our committee, was the foremost Sunday School worker in 
our State and was active in national and world-wide Sunday School 
movements. The space allowed for this report forbids details of 
his devotion to our Sunday School work and his splendid achieve- 
ments in forward movements in modern Sunday Schools. God has 
called him to the reward of his fidelity and loyalty to His cause 
here on earth. We loved him and looked to him for counsel. The 
last time your Secretary was with him, discussing the work, be- 
fore his death he remarked, "Brother Middleton, you will miss me 



46 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

in this kind of work some day." We do miss him and need him. 
Records of lives are closing daily. God holds us personally re- 
sponsible for what we do. Then again we are responsible for our 
fidelity to His organized work. We have tried diligently to help 
our Sunday Schools in every section of the State, and many schools 
are catching visions of larger and more efficient work. 

PRESENT CONDITIONS. 

The records show a healthy gain, really above normal. Last 
year we reported 1934 schools, this year 2052. Last year the mem- 
bership was 190,686, this year it is 201,224. Last year there were 
reported seventy-five branch schools, this year 111. Last year there 
seemed to be 195 churches without Sunday Schools, this year 152. 

The work of organizing new Sunday Schools goes on as formerly. 
This year about seventy-five have been established. Of the 152 
churches not reporting schools at least fifty have suspended all 
public worship, but have not disbanded and are carried on our 
rolls. Possibly twenty-five others have unreported schools. There 
are, in fact, not more than seventy-five churches now where Sun- 
day Schools could reasonably be organized and maintained. 

Many branch schools are not reported and the membership of 
less than half of those reported are included in the report of the 
home school. 

FINANCES. 

When this department used a part of the office space of the mis- 
sion rooms and the same stenographer as the Corresponding Sec- 
retary, our expenses were about $350 less than since assuming these 
expenses. The churches have not met this increase with other ex- 
penses incident to the work. We are not in debt, but we have not 
met this year's expenses by $86.40. Last year we carried over 
$229.83. This was not a surplus. It came into the Treasurer's 
hands after November 25th, and was needed to open the new year's 
work when practically nothing is being received. We ought to so 
arrange our finances that November collections can be used for 
winter expenses. This year we have received $2,500.71, but $500 
of this came from the Sunday School Board. This is a gain of 
$120.29 over last year. 

Your committee is fully convinced that there ought to be an in- 
crease of the fund for office work in the items of printing, postage 
and clerical help. 

FIELD WORK. 

The usual field work has been done, spending about one-half the 
time among the churches. Fewer sessions of the Associations were 
attended and more Institutes held. 

The Sunday School Board has furnished us valuable help in 
sending to us Brethren Beauchamp, Spilman, Burroughs and Wiley 
of their field force. The field work is intended to arouse our work- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 191 4. 47 

ers to a realization of their obligations to train themselves so they 
may bring their Sunday Schools to the highest degree of efficiency 
possible in organization, equipment and teaching. 

OFFICE WORK. 

We have written more general and personal letters and issued 
more printed matter than during any year hitherto. This has 
increased our printing and postage accounts very largely. We hope 
there will be rich fruitage from this in the future. 

There was issued to pastors and superintendents a special appeal 
in an effort to reach more of our church members. With this went 
a tract "Four Questions for Church Members." 

The most important tract was issued following the instructions 
of the Convention in Shelby— "To arrange and promote a definite 
educational program for the proper presentation at definite times 
of all our Convention enterprises to and through our Sunday 
Schools." 

The program proposed is as follows: (1) Sunday School Mis- 
sions, one Sunday each in February, June and September. (2) 
The Orphanage, once each month on such Sundays as will suit best 
in the respective churches. (3) Home and Foreign Missions, on 
'Mission Day in the Sunday School" in March or April. (4) Min- 
isterial Education in April or May. (5) State Missions in October 
or November. (6) Ministerial relief, one Sunday near Christmas 

Practically this program has been observed in many of the more 
up-to-date Sunday Schools in the past. The result is contributions 
of about $40,000 from the Sunday Schools during last year Our 
task is to persuade all Sunday Schools to follow this plan. 

Many fail to put the proper estimate on the value of our office 
work. All forward movements of our State work start here and 
all such progress worth while must be planned here. 

TEACHER TRAINING. 

Dr. J. B. Gambrel has said, "The most significant movement in- 
augurated among Southern Baptists is the teacher training work 
of the Sunday School Board." Your committee and Secretary agree 
with this, but the rank and file of our Sunday School workers do 
not seem to realize it. 

Excellent work is being done in our Baptist colleges and schools. 
The re are now classeg aggregating 556 , n geventeen Qf these ^ 

shtutions Others assure us of classes during the spring term. 
We ought to reach 800 to 1,000 of these young people with a vision 
of the best in Sunday School work during this scholastic year. 
This work is constructive and must bear fruit later 

This m! f "T!! 168 ^ haVe ClaSS6S reP ° rted aggregating 414. 
This is fine for these churches, but the number of churches is 



48 N. G. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

humiliating. Instead of twenty there ought to be and could be 
300 to 400 classes now at work. 

It is reasonably well established that every year at least 6,000 
inexperienced and untrained workers become officers and teachers 
in our Sunday Schools for the first time. It does not need argu- 
ment to prove that we need a movement to help these good people. 

ORGANIZED CLASSES. 

Our Sunday School Board, at Nashville, has several depart- 
ments. The youngest and one of the most important of these is 
the "Convention Adult Bible Class Department." It exists because 
the Southern Baptist Convention, feeling the need of it, instructed 
the Board to establish it. It is an effort to align, with general de- 
nominational direction, all organized classes in one organization. 
The work is growing steadily and we have the confidence that in 
due time it will become a great factor in our denominational Sunday 
School work and in the training of our adult Sunday School mem- 
bership to larger efficiency. 

Oar State now stands second in number of classes and third in 
the enrollments of these classes. We believe this work will show 
marked growth in the very near future. More and more Baptists 
are realizing the desirability of uniting, indoctrinating and train- 
ing their young people. No one can fix wiser policies or plan more 
helpful activities for them than those who know our doctrines and 
polity. 

In addition to formerly existing organized classes, by whatever 
name called, which are invited to register in this department, our 
Board is now offering some distinctive denominational classes — 
Berean for young men, Fidelis for young women, T. E. L. (Timothy, 
Eunice and Lois) for mothers, and Convention Bible classes for 
mature men or mixed classes. 

Of the many forms of class organization used in the past the 
Baraca and Philathea are by far the largest. These classes have 
engendered great enthusiasm, created good fellowship and done 
much splendid work. For about twenty years their operations were 
confined almost entirely to the work of the local class and school, 
but more recent activities are developing the inter-class operations 
in county and city unions and district, State, and world-wide con- 
ventions. In all these the movement is distinctly interdenomina- 
tional. 

We recognize the democracy of every Baptist church, and would 
not interfere with this if we could. Certainly it is the right of all 
to affiliate with interdenominational agencies if they wish. To 
such churches we wish the largest success in their organized 
classes, but we would urge them to affiliate also with all the agencies 
fostered by our own Sunday School Board. In doing this we urge 
the registration of all Baraca-Philathea Classes, with all others, 



MINUTES OF SESSION 191^. 49 

in the Convention Adult Bible Class Department. This does not 
involve change of name, officers, or plan of work. Classes may 
apply to your Secretary for registration. 

To those who prefer only denominational affiliations we com- 
mend the Baptist classes named above. 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

1. That there be no halt until every church has in it a Sunday 
School. Let associational workers look after this and call for co- 
operation from the State office. 

2. That the work of enlisting more of our church members be 
pressed. 

3. That all adult classes be organized and registered in the "Con- 
vention Adult Bible Class Department." 

4. That teacher training be emphasized, not only among present 
officers and teachers, but in a Normal Class of adults reciting dur- 
ing the Sunday School hour. 

5. That we urge our people to. cooperate with the Southern Bap- 
tist Assembly at Ridgecrest in its Sunday School work. Further, 
that we empower the Sunday School Committee, in conjunction 
with any special committee appointed by the Convention, to hold 
an assembly on the seacoast if financial arrangements can be made. 

6. That more of our Sunday Schools contribute to Sunday School 
Missions. There is a demand for such an enlargement of the work 
as to require at least $2,750 for next year, including the $500 from 
the Sunday School Board. 

C. J. Hunter, Chairman. 
E. L. Middleton, Secretary. 



LAYMEN'S MOVEMENT. 

Last March a meeting of far-reaching influence was held in the 
city of Durham under the auspices of the Laymen's Committee. It 
was called the Baptist Men's Missionary Meeting. It was largely 
attended and the interest was deep from the beginning to the close. 
To Dr. John Jeter Hurt, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dur- 
ham, is due much of the credit for the success of the meeting. Dr. 
Charles E. Brewer, chairman of the Laymen's Committee, prepared 
an excellent program, and gave general direction to the discussions. 
All who attended this gathering of Baptist men were enthusiastic 
in their commendations of it. While we do not believe it would 
be wise to attempt such a meeting annually, we are of the opinion 
that such a gathering occasionally, say every three years, would do 
much toward deepening the interest of our people in missions and 
improving our methods of work. 

In several associations mission campaigns were made and, with- 
4 



50 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONTENTION. 

out exception, these associations advanced in their contributions 
to missions. The Associations in which mission campaigns were 
conducted will continue the work next year, and we trust that 
many others will inaugurate campaigns. 

Dr. Brewer, chairman of the Laymen's Committee, is a very busy 
man and cannot visit many associations and churches, but he will 
be glad to accept as many invitations as possible, and will always 
give information about the work to any who write for such infor- 
mation. 



WOMAN'S WORK. 

For twenty-six years Miss Fannie E. S. Heck has been at the 
head of the woman's work in North Carolina, and for several years 
has been president of the Woman's Auxiliary Union of the South. 

For months she has been critically ill in a hospital in Rich- 
mond, Va. Hundreds of thousands throughout the South, and mul- 
titudes in North Carolina, have been praying that, if it be consistent 
with God's will, her valuable life may be spared. Though Miss 
Heck has been a great sufferer for months, she has borne her suf- 
ferings with beautiful resignation, and through it all has carried 
on her heart the work of the State Central Committee here in 
Raleigh and of the Central Committee of the Southern Baptist 
Convention in Baltimore. Many letters, written by her own hand, 
containing wise counsel and expressions of 'deep interest have come 
to the office of the Central Committee in Raleigh, and similar com- 
munications have gone to the committee rooms in Baltimore. 

We, the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools, at this, our first 
meeting since Miss Heck became seriously ill, do hereby express 
our deep interest in the work to which, with beautiful unselfish- 
ness, she has devoted her life, and our sincere sympathy and affec- 
tion for her in her hours of suffering. We, with multitudes of 
others, join in earnest prayer that if it be God's will He may speak 
the healing word and give back to us His faithful servant, who 
has led so wisely and well the Baptist women of the State and of 
the South. 

During the absence of Miss Heck from the office the work which 
came under her supervision has been well cared for by Mrs. Jones, 
Miss Barrus, and Miss Briggs. Although this has imposed extra 
burdens on these ladies they have borne them cheerfully. 

Herewith is presented a report of the Central Committee which 
gives a summary of the year's work: 

Report of Central Committee. 
The work of the Woman's Missionary Union shows each year a 
gradual and gratifying growth. The return of the Convention to 
Raleigh recalls the fact that it was here in 1905 that our Union 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 51 

held its last meeting with, the Convention. That year 472 socie- 
ties were reported as being actively engaged in mission work, with 
gifts amounting to $17,150. During the past year 1,072 societies 
have contributed more than $40,000 to the regular objects of the 
Union and $2,000 to the Judson Centennial and Home Church Build- 
ing Funds, these figures showing that during the past nine years 
our numbers and our gifts have far more than doubled. 

The work of the associations shows both a strengthening within 
those already organized and the beginnings of growth in several 
heretofore undeveloped. The associational meetings have been 
excellently planned and largely attended. In 44 associations we 
now have an able and consecrated woman at the head of the work, 
and to these more largely than to any other human instruments 
is due the praise and gratitude for whatever of success the Union 
has achieved. 

There has been a gradual growth and strengthening in all de- 
partments of the work during the past year, the most marked ad- 
vance being along the line of mission study. One hundred and 
twenty-six Mission Study Classes, an increase of 650 new sub- 
scribers to the Foreign Mission Journal and the Home Field and 
over 1,200 subscribers to Our Mission Fields shows that our women 
are realizing more and more the importance of making intelligent 
information the basis of more efficient work. 

As usual an encouraging number of new workers have been en- 
listed. Over 200 new societies have been organized and 1,300 new 
members enrolled. With their increasing strength and support 
and the continued faithfulness of the more experienced workers 
we look forward with hope and courage to the coming year. 

We desire to express our grateful appreciation for the help ex- 
tended by the secretaries and officers of the Convention, the pastors 
and moderators of the associations, and to ask for their continued 
support. We are especially indebted to the Corresponding Secre- 
tary, our beloved Dr. Johnson, whose unfailing cooperation and 
counsel have been as a tower of strength in every time of need. 

For the year ending February, 1914, our contributions were as 
follows: 

To Foreign Missions $ 16,785.95 

To Home Missions 10,624.17 

To State Missions 10,927.19

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

The report of the Foreign Mission Board for the year closing 
May 1, 1914, was a most gratifying one. The report shows that we 
have on the foreign field 380 churches, 278 foreign missionaries, of 
whom 120 are men and 158 women. In addition to these there 
are 151 ordained native missionaries, and 284 unordained native 
helpers, of whom 286 are men and 98 women. The total member- 
ship is 29,991, and there were 5,252 baptisms. Tbere were 9,376 
students in Baptist schools, including 420 in the theological semi- 
naries and training schools". The number of baptisms last year 
was the largest ever reported in one year. 

The Board received for the support of its work last year $587,- 
458.97. This lacked $68,000 of meeting the expenditures of the 
Board, which left a debt of that amount. We are gratified at the 
fine showing made by North Carolina for Foreign Missions. We 
raised $56,318.50, going beyond our apportionment, which was 
$55,000. The figures for next year were fixed at $60,000, and we 
feel confident that our people will raise the full amount. 

North Carolina has twenty-two missionaries on the foreign field. 
Of these nineteen are in China, two in Japan, one in Mexico, and 
one in Argentina. There are many other volunteers ready to go 
as soon as the Board can get the means to send them. At Wake 
Forest and Meredith there are many who have the foreign field 
in view. 

The terrible war now raging in Europe will, we confidently be- 
lieve, result in opening the door of opportunity more widely on 
every foreign field to the missionaries of the cross. We must en- 
large our gifts to Foreign Missions in order that the Board may 
be able to enter the open doors when the day of opportunity comes. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 53 

HOME MISSIONS. 

The Home Board is doing mission work among foreigners, In- 
dians and negroes. It also has missionaries in Cuba and Japan, 
and is doing cooperative mission work in several of the Southern 
States. The missionaries of the Board report 19,198 baptisms and 
19,938 received by letter, a total addition of 39,136. In fairness to 
the State Boards, and in faithfulness to the facts, it should be 
stated that these additions by baptism and letter include those re- 
ported by the State Boards in those States in which cooperative 
mission work is done. This statement is made in a footnote on 
page 282 of the Minutes of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

The department of evangelism has had a successful year. In 
meetings held by the evangelists of the Home Board last year there 
were 8,414 baptisms and 3,834 additions by letter and restoration, 
making the total number of additions 12,248. 

North Carolina is cooperating with the Home Board in the work 
of enlistment. The report of Brother Upchurch shows the charac- 
ter and results of the work done. 

The mountain schools constitute another department of the Home 
Board. Dr. A. E. Brown has been superintendent of this work ever 
since its beginning. The Board has schools located in Virginia, 
Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia and 
Alabama. There were 32 schools last year, with 156 teachers and 
an enrollment of 5,218. The current expenses amounted to $62,036, 
of which amount the Home Board paid $19,500; and improvements 
were made to the amount of $47,936, of which the Home Board 
paid $14,761. Ten of the thirty-two schools in the system are lo- 
cated in North Carolina. 

The Home Board also has a department of church extension or, 
as we are accustomed to designate it, the Church Building Depart- 
ment of the Home Mission Board. This department is in charge 
of Dr. Louis B. Warren and the purpose is to raise a million dol- 
lars to be used as a church building and loan fund. 

The total receipts of the Board last year were $397,849.29. North 
Carolina contributed $32,710.17. We are requested to raise $40,000 
next year, which is a modest sum to ask of our 250,000 people. 



PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS. 
A few practical suggestions are here offered which if acted upon 
would, in the judgment of the Board, add much to the efficiency of 
our work. 

AS TO FINANCES. 

The Board has often urged the necessity of regular contributions 
throughout the year, and has pointed out the danger of leaving so 
much to be done until the very last. This year we reached the last 
week with just a little more than half enough in hand to meet 



54 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

our obligations to State Missions. Unforeseen conditions arose 
which prevented the denomination from concentrating its efforts 
on our State Mission work during the last week, and as a conse- 
quence we are forced to report a debt of $4,825.92. 

We recognize the fact that the several objects have their special 
periods and that during these periods the objects to which they 
belong should have first claim upon our denomination; but we do 
not distribute our contributions over these periods as we should, 
else the pressure would not be so great at the very last. At the 
Convention last year the following resolution was unanimously 
adopted: 

"Resolved, That we ask the churches to make an earnest effort 
to raise the amount that may be due on State Missions on the first 
of September in three installments — one-third by the first of Oc- 
tober, one-third by the first of November, and the remainder by 
the first of December." 

Had the churches acted on the above suggestion we would have 
reached the first of November with $37,500, leaving only $17,500 
to raise in November. Instead of that we reached the last week 
in November with $24,000 still to raise. 

ASSOCIATIONS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES. 

In some important particulars the Associational Executive Com- 
mittees sustain a relation to our Convention which is more im- 
portant than that of the State Board of Missions. In making its 
appropriations the Board is dependent, almost entirely, upon the 
recommendations of the associational Executive Committees. For 
this reason the responsibility that rests upon these committees is 
an extremely solemn one. They are the administrators of sacred 
trust funds, funds given to God by his people, and expended largely 
upon the recommendation of the associational Executive Com- 
mittees. There should be between the State Board of Missions and 
the associational Executive Committees the closest and most cor- 
dial cooperation. We suggest, therefore, 

1. That the chairman of the associational Executive Committee 
be made the representative on the Board from his Association, and 
that he make a very earnest effort to attend the meeting of the 
Board at which the annual appropriations are made. 

2. Executive Committees should be scrupulously careful in making 
recommendations. Every point asking aid should be thoroughly 
investigated by some member of the Executive Committee. The 
Executive Committee should satisfy itself as to three things: (1) 
That the point is one of sufficient promise and importance as to 
justify the expenditure asked; (2) that it is doing all that could 
be reasonably expected of it toward its own support, and (3) that 
the preacher called to the field is capable of doing the work ex- 
pected of him. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 191J,. 55 

3. Members of the Executive Committee should visit every mis- 
sion point during the year and urge them to do all in their power 
toward the support of their pastor. One or two members can 
visit a church or probably two churches on one Sunday, and in 
that way can get around in a comparatively short time. The mem- 
bers of the committee should familiarize themselves with condi- 
tions before making a visit. They should know how many mem- 
bers there are at any given point, how much they contribute to 
pastors' salary and what the contribution amounts to per member. 
If all our Executive Committees should make such investigations 
many of them would be surprised at the revelations that would 
be made. 

4. The Executive Committee of each Association should meet at 
least quarterly and confer in regard to the work in the Associa- 
tion. It would be convenient for the Executive Committee to hold 
a conference on Saturday before the fifth Sunday in associations 
which have fifth Sunday meetings. 

STATE MISSION INFORMATION. 

Our people owe it to themselves as well as to the work to obtain 
all available information on the subject of State Missions. 

We would commend the little book published by the Board last 
year called "Christian Statesmanship." While this book was de- 
signed primarily for a course of mission study in our schools and 
for Mission Study Classes in our churches and missionary societies, 
it can be read with profit by those who desire information in regard 
to the work of State Missions. The book is cloth-bound and con- 
tains a hundred and thirty pages. The price has been fixed at 
twenty-five cents, postpaid. This price barely covers the cost of 
publication, but the book was gotten out, not to make money, but 
to impart information. 

Report of the Board. 
This report contains the result of our State Mission work for 
the year just closed. We believe it would be both profitable and 
interesting if pastors would use this report as a basis for talks 
at three or four mid-week prayer meetings. Few of our people, 
comparatively, ever see the Convention minutes, and of those who 
see them very few study them carefully. If the pastors would talk 
on the important items in this report on every prayer meeting night 
during the month of January, while the facts are fresh in their 
minds, thousands of our people who are now ignorant as to our 
work would get an intelligent conception of what has been done 
during the past year. 

BOARD MEMBERS. 

We believe that no person receiving a salary from the Board 
should be a member of the same. This includes those in the gen- 



56 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

eral work and missionaries of the Board. The Corresponding Sec- 
retary and Treasurer are elected by and are, therefore, officers of 
the Convention, but their salaries are fixed by the Board. The 
others receiving salaries from the Board are directly answerable 
to the Board. In our opinion the Corresponding Secretary, the as- 
sistant to the Corresponding Secretary, the Sunday School Secre- 
tary and the Treasurer should sit in council with the Board and 
perform such duties as the Board may impose upon them, such as 
keeping records, writing reports or, if necessary, serving on com- 
mittees; but they should not be allowed a vote on any question 
that comes before the Board for settlement. 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

We beg leave to submit the following recommendations for the 
consideration of the Convention: 

1. That associational Executive Committees be requested to in- 
sist that churches receiving aid from the Board shall cooperate 
with the Board in the formation of compact fields in the interest 
of efficiency and economy. 

2. That churches which have been aided for a long time be and 
are hereby urged to reduce the amounts asked for each year, and 
to relieve the Board entirely as soon as possible. 

3. That associational Executive Committees, whenever possible 
to do so, shall arrange for mission campaigns. 

4. That our churches be urged to adopt the envelope system, 
and that collections for the objects of the Convention be taken 
weekly or monthly. 

5. That the Executive Committee of the State Mission Board be 
instructed to apportion to the several associations the amounts 
to be raised for the three mission objects, and that the several 
associations be requested to apportion the amounts to the churches. 

6. That the amount to be appropriated for our State Mission 
work next year be fixed at $50,000. 

7. That the Treasurer's books close on Tuesday after the third 
Sunday in November. 

CONCLUSION. 

When all things are taken into consideration there is no occa- 
sion for discouragement. This year's record is the greatest ever 
made by the Baptists of North Carolina. The number of baptisms 
in the State as a whole exceeds that of last year by nearly two 
thousand, while there have been 332 more baptisms on mission 
fields this year than last. 

The Baptists of the State never contributed so much money in 
any one year as they gave this year. The contributions, so far as 
the figures can be obtained, were $271,675.18. Our total of contribu- 
tions to mission objects this year is $134,044.84, an advance over last 
year of $5,325.84. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 19U h

In the conclusion of this report we desire to emphasize, with 
tremendous earnestness, our oft-repeated warning concerning the 
danger of leaving so much to be done until the very last. Pain- 
ful as the experience is, let us profit by it in the future. 

The debt on State Missions was caused by a peculiar combina- 
tion of circumstances and affords no ground whatever for pessim- 
ism. Even under ordinary circumstances a five-thousand-dollar 
debt on a $55,000 business should not be regarded as serious, and 
when the peculiar conditions are considered, such as the European 
war, the appeal for the Belgian sufferers, and the inclement Sun- 
days in November, we should be thankful that our indebtedness is 
no larger. Surely a quarter of a million people will not falter when 
called upon to face a little deficit of five thousand dollars. Many an 
individual Baptist in the State in his private business will be forced 
to carry over into the next year a larger amount than that. Our 
debt is only ten per cent of our expenditures. 

In reporting the Texas Convention which was held a few days 
ago Dr. Gambrell says: "The debt of $40,000 did not even dampen 
the spirit of the Convention." Baptists of North Carolina, are we 
of less heroic mould than our brethren of the Lone Star State? 
We may not do things on as large scale as Texas, but if they are 
undaunted in the face of a $40,000 debt we should enter upon the 
new year hilariously with the little amount of $5,000 on the wrong 
side of the ledger. 

Let us adopt as ours the inspiring language of Joshua in an ad- 
dress to his soldiers just on the eve of battle: "Be of good courage 
and let us play the men for our people and for the cities of our 
God." John E. Ray, President. 

Livingston Johnson, Corresponding Secretary.

I have examined the books of Walters Durham, Treasurer of the 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, and find them correct 
as to receipts and disbursements and all disbursements supported by 
proper vouchers. I also find that proper remittances have been made 
the Foreign and Home Mission Boards as shown by their receipts. 

F. H. Bbiggs, 

December 9, 1914. Auditor. 

W. C. Barrett read the following report on Sunday 
Schools, which was discussed by John A. Oates and J. M. 
Frost, Secretary of the Baptist Sunday School Board, of 
Nashville, Tenn., and adopted. 

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

When the Sunday School movement started it was not a Church 
movement. It has been adopted by the churches and has become a 
part of their work. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL WORK IN GENERAL. 

In the efforts to prepare the Sunday School to meet the needs of 
all classes the Baptists have had no small part in the general work. 
The International Sunday School Association was organized in 1832. 
The Sunday School Council is an organization of the Sunday School 
Secretaries of the various denominations in America. It was organ- 
ized in 1910. These two organizations represent two methods of 
Sunday School work. 

The Council emphasizes the denominational note in the Sunday 
School work. It encourages the workers to give their first allegiance 
to their denomination. The Association has in the past failed to 
emphasize the denominational note. The Association, which has 
hitherto paid little attention to denominational agencies, invited all 
of the Denominational Secretaries to attend its last session in 
Chicago as delegates at large — a thing hitherto unknown. Between 
these two forces the matter of lesson-making is now being treated as 
a football in operation. The result can not yet be seen. 

At the last session of the Association the Lesson Committee was 
readjusted. At present the committee is composed of eight members 
from the Association, eight from the Council, and one from 
each denomination having a Lesson Committee of its own. Of the 
Associational members two are Baptists — Dr. John R. Sampey of 
Louisville, Ky., and Dr. Ira M. Price of Chicago, 111. Dr. I. J. Van 
Ness is the Baptist member for the Council. Dr. E. C. Dargan, 
Macon, Ga., is the member to represent the Lesson Committee of the 
Southern Baptist Convention. Dr. W. E. Chalmers, of Philadelphia, 
represents the Lesson Committee of the Northern Baptist Conven- 
tion. With these able men on the committee Baptists have nothing 



62 N. 0. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

to fear. Whether this arrangement will bring satisfaction is not 
yet seen. 

The Southern Baptist Convention has a Lesson Committee of its 
own, nominated by the Sunday School Board, and elected annually 
by the Convention. The work of the Committee has been to sit in 
judgment on the work of the International Committee. Our Com- 
mittee has rejected and revised a great deal of the Graded Lesson 
work of the International Committee. Just how long this plan of 
selecting our lessons will continue no one can tell, but the indica- 
tions now are that the time is not far distant when the large de- 
nominations will select their own lessons. 

WORK OF THE BAPTISTS IX THE SOUTH. 

No department of the work of the Southern Baptist Convention 
has been more prosperous than that of the Sunday School Board 
located at Nashville, Tenn. It was launched after much thinking 
and praying and many warm discussions on the floor of the Con- 
vention. It prospered from the very first and continues to prosper 
to this day. Rev. J. M. Frost, D.D., Christian statesman and finan- 
cier, with the aid of his co-workers, has managed the affairs of the 
Board with such skill as to arouse the admiration of all who have 
been acquainted with its progress. 

The new Sunday School building was presented to the Conven- 
tion at its last session in Nashville. It is one of the best and most 
beautiful buildings in the city. It is conveniently located and emi- 
nently suited for the work of the Board. The lot on which the build- 
ing stands cost $60,000 and the building cost $160,000, making a 
total of $220,000. 

The field work of the Board is being pushed with intelligence 
and vigor. 

In addition to the regular helps on the Uniform Lessons the 
Board is furnishing a system of Graded Lessons for the Beginners, 
Primary, Junior, Intermediate and Senior departments. The 
Graded Lessons have been well received and the demand for them 
is growing rapidly. 

The business of the Board has been successfully conducted. Start- 
ing with nothing but the endorsement of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention, it has accumulated property to the amount of $556,277.20. 
It has not been selfish for it has given liberally to the other objects 
of the Convention, and in addition has helped to carry on the Sun- 
day School work in all the States of the Convention. Last year the 
Board gave $53,602.95 to other objects. This includes about $30,000 
appropriated to the Field Department of the Board. Since the Board 
was established twenty-three years ago it has returned to the de- 
nomination in gifts $582,486.52. 

The Baptists were the first denomination in the South to under- 
take teacher training work. The Board has provided a normal 
course of the best books on the Bible and Sunday School teaching. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 63 

Already 26,508 of the Sunday School teachers in the Baptist Sunday 
Schools in the South have diplomas, 2,552 of these being held by 
teachers in North Carolina. 

The Organized Class Movement has been a wonderful stimulus 
to the Sunday School work during the past few years. The Baraca- 
Philathea movement originated by Mr. Marshal A. Hudson, with 
headquarters at Syracuse, N. Y., has been the most aggressive and 
most generally accepted plan of organized classes. 

So popular and widespread has become this movement in the 
South, particularly in North Carolina, that when our denomination 
thought the time ripe for the development of its own organized 
adult class work it sought first to utilize the machinery of the 
Baracas and Philatheas. It was soon found, however, that satis- 
factory cooperation was unattainable, and the Baptist denomination 
proceeded to develop and promote its own plan of organization, 
eventuating in Berean classes for men and Fidelis classes for women. 
This plan is meeting with a hearty response from our people. 
Quite a number of new classes have been organized under the names 
"Berean" and "Fidelis"; and, moreover, some of the Baraca and 
Philathea Classes have seen fit to readjust their plan of organiza- 
tion and adopt these distinctive Baptist names. We feel sure that 
any difficulties that may arise from a readjustment of our organ- 
ized classes to bring them into organic relationship with our de- 
nomination can be solved without injury either to the class or the 
denomination. We commend the statement about organized classes 
and the recommendations in the report of the Sunday School Com- 
mittee of the Board of Missions. 

IN NORTH CAROLINA. 

The Baptists of North Carolina have had a good part in the Sun- 
day School work of the South and of the world. We have furnished 
to the world some Sunday School workers of the first magnitude. 
Our Sunday School Committee of the State Board of Missions has 
been wise and energetic in the pursuit of the work; hampered at 
times by the lack of means and by indifference on the part of pas- 
tors and churches, yet the committee has diligently pressed the 
work with magnificent success. Last year there were 934 schools; 
this; year 2,052, a gain of 118. There are this year 111 branch 
schools; at least 75 new schools were organized. Total membership 
now is 201,224, a gain of 10,443 over last year. The Sunday Schools 
gave last year at least $40,000 over and above all Sunday School 
expenses used at home. 

The committee was fortunate in securing a few years ago Bro. 
E. L. Middleton as Secretary. Being deeply interested in the work, 
thoroughly acquainted with the needs and conditions and with 
Sunday School methods, he has pursued the work with untiring 
vigilance and brought it to a splendid success. 



64 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

We would appeal to the pastors to assume the leadership in the 
Sunday School work. We believe that if the pastors will inform 
their people as to the conditions, methods and means suggested and 
offered by our own agencies they will be readily adopted. The aver- 
age superintendent will welcome any suggestion from the pastor 
and heartily cooperate with him in adopting such plans as will 
make the Sunday School an effective agency for building up the 
kingdom of God. 

There is great need of pressing the work of organized classes 
along denominational lines. We would recommend that this work 
be pressed with all diligence in the State and that a Field Secre- 
tary for Organized Class Work be put in the field by the Sunday 
School Board at Nashville as soon as possible.

W. M. Gilmore read the following report on State Mis- 
sions and H. C. Moore offered the appended amendment: 

STATE MISSIONS. 

The story of Baptist State Mission work in North Carolina is 
indeed thrilling to those who are interested in kingdom building. 
For far-seeing Christian statesmanship and for heroic sacrifices, 
our denominational leaders in this State for the past century can 
scarcely be surpassed anywhere. Eternity alone can reveal what 
a large part these faithful, consecrated patriots have contributed 
toward the uplift of multiplied thousands of precious lives, who, 
in turn, have become mighty factors in the material, intellectual, 
moral and spiritual development of the State. 

The wisdom of our forefathers, who organized this Convention in 
1830, in providing for a liberal State Mission policy has been amply 
justified by the rapid spread and deep rooting of our Baptist prin- 
ciples from Manteo to Murphy. So that today, instead of the 15,000 
Baptists who were in the State when the division came 84 years 
ago, there is a mighty army of more than 400,000 souls who are 
marching under the same banner as did Martin Ross and Thomas 
Meredith. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 65 

Have not Baptists, therefore, just about completed their task in 
North Carolina? The very fact of our rapid and widespread growth 
has only magnified and intensified our obligation to train these 
hosts for world-conquest. So that today the need of the work of 
the State Mission Board is more imperative than it was 50 years 
ago, acute as was the situation at that time. 

That the titanic struggle now going on across the sea will bring 
about a new era in the evangelization of the world is a foregone 
conclusion. Let us hope that one result of the present war in 
Europe will be the sounding of the death-knell of that senseless 
and godless militarism that has predominated for so long in some 
sections of that country. But a result that will surely follow will 
be the influx of vast hordes of immigrants to this country. There 
is a straight road from every nation in Europe to the United States. 
Already the government has taken steps to divert much of the im- 
migration to our Southern ports. Many of these foreigners will 
doubtless find homes in the "Good Old North State." We shall need, 
therefore, to fortify our positions as never before, not only to 
evangelize them with the pure gospel when they come, but that we 
may save ourselves from the influence of their ideas of government 
and religion, which are not friendly to ours. We must get ready 
to meet these people with the gospel. If we do not win them to 
Christian ideals they will win our children to their ideals. The 
moral and religious welfare of several generations will be deter- 
mined largely by what we do for State Missions within the next 
two or three years. If we fail to erect the bulwarks of defense, the 
atheistic and materialistic ideas of Europe will overwhelm us. 

Another result that will inevitably follow will be the greatly im- 
poverished condition in men and money of our sister nations, who 
are engaged with us in carrying the gospel to the ends of the earth, 
so that the heathen world will have to look to the Christians of 
America largely for the bread of life for the next generation. 

Our State Board needs, therefore, to double its efforts in making 
the great body of our churches and the rank and file of our mem- 
bership more efficient, so that we may be able to meet successfully 
the oncoming crisis. 

But, independent of the new conditions thrust upon us in recent 
months, there are still many unfinished tasks for North Carolina 
Baptists within our own borders. According to the last religious 
census of the State only a little over 40 per cent of all the people 
of the State are even nominal Christians. There are yet vast areas 
in our State where the gospel, as we preach it, is never heard. Of 
the 256,599 white Baptists reported in the State, perhaps not more 
than one-fourth of them are doing anything much for the growth 
of the kingdom. There are yet many strategic centers where our 
cause is suffering for the lack of proper equipment. Many points 

5 



66 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

are unable to sustain strong, efficient men, such as the exigencies 
of the fields demand. 

Furthermore, with our recent industrial development there has 
sprung up a distinct type of citizenship within our midst that must 
be reckoned with. That type is commonly known as "the mill peo- 
ple." They are more or less nomadic in their habits of living, and 
so, as a rule, they are not permanent fixtures in church activities. 
Though they are very susceptible to religious influences they are 
quick to detect any lack of social recognition, and the average 
church, pursuing its ordinary methods, will fail every time to reach 
the great majority of them. And yet no class of people needs more 
the saving, uplifting power of the gospel than this one. Here the 
State Board must step in with its strong arm of support and pro- 
vide adequate gospel privileges for this ever-increasing class of our 
citizenship which, if left alone, will affect our civilization disas- 
trously. 

The problem of the backward country church we have always 
with us. Though the great bulwark of our Baptist strength has 
ever been in the country, yet if all the churches could be aroused 
so that they could catch a vision of the great tasks before us, our 
strength would be multiplied a hundredfold. 

But a better day is dawning. The work of our State Mission 
agencies, including that of our Sunday School, B. Y. P. U., Enlist- 
ment and W. M. XT. departments, is already bearing rich fruitage. 

We need to emphasize more and more the supreme value of spirit- 
ual religion for the individual life, which will manifest itself in 
daily conduct. A galvanized religion will not stand the test of 
these times. The true evangelistic note must sound out clear and 
strong from every pulpit from the mountains to the sea. 

But with this must go the persistent teaching and training of 
each individual Christian life, else vast mines of undeveloped and 
unutilized resources will not be released for the work of extending 
the kingdom, as is sadly true at present. Too much stress, there- 
fore, cannot be placed upon those agencies that are promoting the 
training of our young people in church membership. This, we be- 
lieve, is the only solution of many of the problems that confront 
us today. If our young people are rooted and grounded in the 
faith, and are taught to be skillful in the use of their Bibles, they 
will not be easily swept off their feet by every wind of doctrine, 
of which the air is full. If they have been taught the needs of our 
mission fields, and have received the master mission motive in their 
hearts from a constant study of the Word, they will not turn a deaf 
ear to the cry of need when they have means to supply it. They 
will give regularly and proportionately, as the Lord has prospered 
them. There will be no deficits in our mission treasuries, and the 
annual agony for funds for State Missions and other objects at 
stated seasons will be only a sad memory of former days. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 67 

In view of the extraordinary conditions through which we are 
now passing we are exceedingly gratified that the debt reported on 
State Missions is no larger. We earnestly recommend that this 
deficit be wiped out at the earliest possible moment, and that our 
State Mission work be pitched on the same basis for the ensuing 
year as for the year just closed, $50,000 for mission work, and that 
the matter of appropriations for church building be left to the dis- 
cretion of the Executive Committee.

AMENDMENT. 

The report of the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools, owing 
to the modesty of the Corresponding Secretary, Livingston Johnson, 
D.D., who wrote it, contains only the merest mention of the popular 
and valuable State Mission Study Text-book, which he wrote and 
published a few months ago. It is entitled "Christian Statesman- 
ship"; it is well and worthily written; it contains much valuable 
information which our people ought to have and use; it is well 
adapted to both private reading and class work, as already amply 
proven; and it merits a circulation which will quickly distribute 
the first edition of 2,000 copies, half of which is gone, and call for 
successive editions. We warmly commend it to all our people for 
class use in B. Y. P. U., W. M. U. and other special classes as well 
as for individual perusal. It is a neat cloth-bound volume of 130 
pages and the price covers only the actual cost of printing and 
binding — twenty-five cents per copy. 

The report was discussed by Braxton Craig, Livingston 
Johnson, C. W. Scarborough, J. M. Frost, B. Cade, W. L. 
Poteat, and C. J. Thompson. 

A ring sent to Treasurer Durham by a young lady at the 
Louisville Training School to be sold and the price appro- 
priated to State Missions, was presented tothe Convention, 
which precipitated the taking of an offering, which amounted 
to $90.84 for the ring, and was appropriated to State Mis- 
sions, and Secretary Johnson was directed to return the ring 
to the young iady as a present with the love of the Conven- 
tion. 

The report as amended was adopted. 



68 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

H. C. Moore read the following report on the Biblical Re- 
corder. 

THE BIBLICAL RECORDER. 

Shall we launch today a great circulation campaign for the Bibli- 
cal Recorder? 

Its circulation this week is 12,500 copies, which in this regard 
puts it in the front rank of denominational papers. The list is re- 
markably clean and up-to-date and subscribers are, in this trying 
period on newspapers, particularly religious newspapers, loyal to 
the Recorder in a gratifying degree. 

But with all this we are barely touching our task. There are 
now 256,000 white Baptists in North Carolina, some 200,000 of them 
not reading the Recorder. There are approximately 75,000 white 
Baptist homes in the State, at least 60,000 of them not receiving 
the Recorder. There are probably from 3,000 to 5,000 new Baptist 
homes entered or formed among us each year without the Recorder 
reaching one-tenth of them. We had nearly 15,000 new people to 
come into our churches last year by baptism, and we fear that the 
ministry of the Recorder is not enlisting one in a hundred of them. 
Scores of our ordained ministers, hundreds of our Sunday School 
superintendents and church clerks, and thousands of our deacons 
are not readers of the Recorder. 

In view of these pertinent though rather humbling facts we are 
certainly conservative in saying that the Recorder right now ought 
to have a stable circulation of at least 25,000, and that in a few 
years it ought to be carried up to 40,000 or 50,000 and beyond. 

The directors of the Recorder, who for nearly seven years have 
met monthly and gone carefully over all the affairs of the paper, 
guarding diligently its financial welfare, and for their service de- 
serving the thanks of our entire brotherhood, call upon the Con- 
vention to more directly and vigorously aid them in solving the 
circulation problem. They feel that two things are necessary: 
First, to make an offer that will win subscribers and support with- 
out endangering the financial stability of the paper; and secondly, 
to secure the right helpers to carry out the circulation program. 

After editorial consultation with several local Pastors' Conferences 
and endorsement by the North Carolina Baptist Pastors' Conference 
in this city on Monday last, the following offer is therefore made 
to and through the churches: Ten thousand new annual subsc7~ip- 
tions for ten thousand dollars. Ten thousand is named because 
that many ought to be gotten; they are needed, and a smaller task 
would hardly shock this great Convention into a realization of its 
possibilities or a performance of its duties in this direction. The 
dollar proposition can be safely made only in bulk, only to new an- 
nual subscribers who pay in advance, and in the prospect of enter- 
ing a large per cent, twenty-five in some, fifty in others, and seventy- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 69 

five in a few, of the homes in the churches cooperating. Let it be 
clear that the regular subscription price must for the present re- 
main at $1.50 per year. The directors feel that when the circulation 
reaches a stable minimum circulation of 20,000 weekly they will 
probably be able to reduce the price to $1 per year on the strictly 
cash basis. 

To carry out any adequate circulation program there must be 
more than the office and field work hitherto done by and for the 
Recorder. We are firmly convinced that the paper should be put 
squarely on the hearts and in the hands of the churches, and that 
the churches should put behind the circulation of the paper their 
organization and energy just as they do other phases of our de- 
nominational activity. Moreover, we feel that since the paper has 
lent and spent itself for the upbuilding of all our work, it will not 
be an intrusion to ask that our general denominational workers be 
asked to join in the proposed campaign for new subscribers. 

We recommend that we enter upon a campaign for 10,000 new 
annual subscriptions for the Recorder at $1 each in clubs to 
churches; that the time for this campaign extend from the meeting 
of this Convention to that of the Southern Baptist Convention next 
May; that we commend to the churches the observance of "Recorder 
Days" during this period, and that we call upon our State denomi- 
national workers, as far as their duties will permit, to join in the 
campaign. 

The report was discussed by W. R. Bradshaw, T. J. Tay- 
lor, G. T. Lumpkin, C. J. Thompson, E. R. Harris, and S. L. 
Morgan, and adopted. 

After a devotional service, conducted by C. B. Waller, the 
Convention adjourned for dinner.

70 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

E. E. Smith, President of the colored Baptist State Con- 
vention, was presented as a fraternal messenger from that 
body. 

T. B. Davis read the following report on the Baptist Young 
People's Union : 

REPORT ON BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S UNION. 

From the report submitted to the Southern Baptist Convention 
in Nashville this year the Baptist Young People's Union is making 
marked advancement throughout the South, and, from our Secre- 
tary's report, North Carolina is making encouraging progress. How- 
ever the work has been at somewhat of a disadvantage during much 
of the present year. Through the resignation of the Secretary last 
year the position was left vacant for some time. Finally Rev. J. D. 
Moore, of Ridgecrest, was secured for the place, and the splendid 
work he has done shows the wisdom of his selection. While fewer 
Unions report this year, yet the efficiency of these is greater in en- 
rollment, study course and Bible study, than that of the larger num- 
ber of Unions reported last year. Brother Moore could be secured 
for only one-half his time owing to his duties as Secretary of the 
Southern Baptist Assembly at Ridgecrest, and this, of course, has 
prevented growth of the work. 

The Convention in Raleigh, June 9-11, was well attended, and from 
both a practical and spiritual standpoint it was the best yet held. 
Mr. Arthur Flake's practical lectures on the Manual and Dr. Weston 
Bruner's spiritual addresses on evangelism were unexcelled, and 
were worthy of the presence of any pastor and young people in our 
State. The next Convention will be held at Mt. Airy, June 9-11, 
next year. We hope every pastor will urge the attendance of a 
number of his young people, and will add his presence. 

We are glad the Convention last year deemed it wise to continue 
its fostering aid to the young people's work so generously, and 
would recommend that the Convention continue to give it as liberal 
support financially as possible. We believe there is no money spent 
in our denominational enterprises which counts for more in king- 
dom building than that spent in helping to train our young people 
in efficient service. We hope provision may be made for the next 
year by which our Secretary may be able to give his full time to 
the work. 

If the Baptists of this Convention and of our Southland would 
have a committee of, say, Drs. Gambrell, Frost and Mullins, to pre- 
pare a scriptural catechism covering the great fundamental doc- 
trines of our faith, and then if our pastors would teach this dili- 
gently to the "little child in our midst," following it faithfully with 
"the B. Y. P. U. idea," many of our most difficult and distressing 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 71 

problems would be solved in another generation. Child training is 
fundamental, and we cannot afford to neglect it. If we do, the B. 
Y. P. U. and other agencies cannot rescue the young Christian from 
the loss sustained by this neglect of fundamental foundation work. 
But, some say, that brings an almost impossible task. Almost, but 
not altogether; between us and the greatest opportunities lie the 
biggest obstacles. By removing these many of us will find that 
others have disappeared. Were there no enemy to face there could 
be no victory gained. Many pastors are spending their energies at 
the top when it would be far more profitable to work at the bottom. 
Let us stop for a while gathering nubbins on the old corn and cul- 
tivate the young and tender corn that gives promise of a full harvest. 

To quote from the report of our State Mission Board of last year: 
"We believe there is a very important place in our denominational 
organization for the B. Y. P. U. work. It is unquestionably true 
there are influences at work among our young people which tend 
to weaken their denominational loyalty. Some of our young people 
have been caught in the current of interdenominational movements, 
and are being led to believe that to be loyal to one's own denomi- 
nation is an indication of narrowness." This tendency in some 
parts of our State has almost become epidemic, and many of our 
young people, if they ever knew them, are losing sight of the great 
fundamental doctrines as taught by the Word and by Baptists. As 
Dr. Frost would say, you cannot expect a coon dog to do other than 
chase rabbits unless he has been trained to know the difference be- 
tween rabbit and raccoon tracks. The time has come, if we would 
save our young people for efficient service, and would have them 
"bear much fruit" as well as sound, wholesome fruit, for us to bend 
our energies to planting and cultivating "the things that be of 
God" in the hearts and minds of these. Again I quote: "It is the 
mission of the B. Y. P. U. to teach our young people the doctrines 
of our faith," and we would add, train them for effective service in 
the kingdom through our denominational agencies. A B. Y. P. U. 
in every church, meeting regularly, studying our peculiar doctrines, 
missions, taking the study course and keeping up the daily Bible 
readings would, we believe, do more to our young people for great 
usefulness than all other agencies combined. No other agency of 
our denomination does any part of teaching and training the young 
Cbristian as the B. Y. P. U. It is as nearly all-inclusive as possible. 
It shows both the what and the how of Christian living. The Sun- 
day School leads through the Word into Christ; the B. Y. P. U. 
through the Christ into the more abundant life. 

The preservation and propagation of the church depend upon the 
enlisting, enlightening and enthusing of these babes in Christ. Save 
the young men for intelligent citizenship and you save the State; 
train the young Christian for efficient service in kingdom affairs 
and you save the church for the kingdom. If there is one message 



72 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

which the Spirit would tell to the churches with unceasing empha- 
sis it is, "Feed my lambs." These lambs are the hope for both food 
and raiment in spiritual things to the perishing world.

H. C. Moore made the following report of the Judson Cen-

REPORT OF JUDSON CENTENNIAL COMMITTEE. 

Two years ago last May the Southern Baptist Convention, in ses- 
sion at Oklahoma City, launched the Judson Centennial campaign 
for $1,250,000 for the equipment of our mission fields in various 
countries of the world. When the committee met last July in 
Asheville it was announced that more than $600,000 had been al- 
ready raised, and it was agreed that the campaign for this special 
fund should be pressed to completion within the specified time, 
which comes to a close by the meeting of the 1915 Convention in 
Houston, Texas. 

Two years ago this week the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina, in session at Goldsboro, approved the Judson campaign 
in general and specifically assumed as our share of the common 
task the equipment of the Yates field in China at an estimated cost 
of from $90,000 to $100,000. 

Last year at Shelby your committee was able to report that in 
cash and subscriptions about $60,000 had been raised in this State. 
We come to you this year with the report that good progress has 
been made in collections and new subscriptions during the past 
twelvemonth. We are, however, short of our goal by a good many 



MINUTES OF SESSION 191.',. 73 

thousands of dollars. We urge that those of our churches, which 
have not yet participated in this effort, join in the movement within 
the next few months in order that the campaign may be success- 
fully completed by the first of May next. 

We make grateful record of the faithful and efficient service of 
Elder Braxton Craig, who, as Field Representative for the Judson 
Fund in North Carolina, has visited many of our churches and 
wisely led them in making symmetrical gifts to this and other ob- 
jects. We commend him anew to the churches and ask that cordial 
cooperation be further given him in the discharge of his task. 

Your committee reports the loss of two of its members: Brother 
N. B. Broughton, whose death has been so deeply felt and so widely 
lamented, and Rev. W. C. Tyree, D.D., who a few months ago re- 
moved from the State to enter upon the pastorate of the First Bap- 
tist Church of Greenwood, Miss. If it is your desire to continue 
this committee, we would be pleased for the President to appoint 
members to fill these vacancies and to aid in the further prosecu- 
tion of the work. Hight C. Moore, 

For Committee. 

W. E. Crocker, a returned missionary from China and a 
native of this State, spoke, as did also B. Craig, Field Rep- 
resentative of the Centennial Movement in North Carolina, 
after which the report was adopted. 

A telegram from J. C. Pritchard, President of the Board 
of Trustees of the Southern Baptist Assembly at Ridgecrest, 
was read, urging the brotherhood to come to the rescue of the 
Assembly promptly lest its property be lost to the denomina- 
tion. 

A letter from F. M. Jordan was read, and Secretary 
Brewer was instructed to convey to him the tender regards 
of the Convention, along with the free will offering that was 
taken for him, amounting to $37. 11. 

J. H. Foster read the following report, which was adopted : 

We, your committee appointed to arrange for Summer Assembly 
on the coast, beg leave to present the following report: 

At Wrightsville Beach we have secured Assembly Hall, second 
floor of Oceanic Hotel. Hotels, boarding houses and, for those want- 
ing cheaper rates, portable houses offer ample accommodation for 
all who will attend. 

Facilities for transportation from Union Station to beach are as 



74 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

nearly perfect as possible. The Tidewater Power Company has made 
special concessions. 

Arrangements have been made for financing the first year's 
program. 

We would recommend that a committee be appointed to decide 
upon time of meeting, arrange program, advertise and attend to all 
details necessary to make the Assembly a success. 

Respectfully submitted, J. H. Foster, 

For the Committee. 

The President appointed J. J. Hurt to take the place of 
]ST. B. Broughton on this committee. 

J. J. Hall, of Atlanta, Secretary of the Southern Branch 
of the American Peace Society, read the following resolution, 
which was adopted : 

RESOLUTION ON PEACE AND WAR. 

Whereas, nine nations, representing more than one-half of the 
world's population, are now engaged in the most terrible war of 
the ages, killing hundreds of thousands of human beings, causing 
tens of thousands of helpless women to wander about homeless and 
penniless, and millions of innocent children to be orphans; reducing 
to ashes historic and once beautiful towns; taking from the world's 
finances and the avenues of constructive trade $50,000,000 daily; 
engendering hatred, bitterness and revenge; hindering the church 
of Jesus Christ in all of her missionary and educational enterprises; 
therefore be it resolved: 

1. That we condemn and are utterly opposed to the militarism 
that stands behind this awful carnage, which, disregarding the sa- 
credness of human life and the rights of the people, makes its ap- 
peal to the sword, the mine, the aeroplane, and the cannon, rather 
than to reason and justice and the teaching of the New Testament. 

2. That we believe that international difficulties ought to be set- 
tled by law rather than by force; that might does not make right; 
that war should never be resorted to until all peaceful methods have 
been exhausted. 

3. That we commend our government for its high moral standard 
upon international matters; the fine self-restraint in our relations 
with all nations, and the twenty-eight treaties affected with other 
governments by our Secretary of State looking toward the preven- 
tion of war. 

4. That we do not believe that the terrible war now raging calls 
upon us to imitate the old world in its colossal preparations for 
war, but rather appeals to the United States of America to show 
all nations a better way: the way of justice to all; the way of 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 75 

actual democracy, where the people rule; the way of the gospel of 
Jesus Christ. 

5. That we recognize with devout gratitude the near approach 
of the anniversary of one hundred years of peace between Great 
Britain and the United States, and hope this peace may be unbroken 
through all the coming years. 

6. That while we would encourage the organization of peace so- 
cieties in cities and States, we believe that the call comes with no 
uncertain sound to the Church of the living God, bidding her to 
bestir herself, to see her responsibility as the representative of 
Jesus Christ among the nations; reminding her that only through 
suffering love can the world be redeemed, her tears wiped away, and 
the curse of war forever removed.

son, D. P. Harris, S. L. Morgan. 

The following resolutions offered bj W. C. Barrett were 
referred to a committee of fifteen : 

A SIMPLER PLAN. 

Whereas, the work of the Baptist State Convention has multiplied 
and increased till it has become confusing to some and difficult to 
carry out a program without neglecting or rushing through im- 
portant matters; and, whereas, many things that take up the time 
of the Convention may be omitted without loss to the objects of the 
Convention; and, whereas, the program may be shortened and sim- 
plified; therefore be it resolved: 

1. That the work of the Convention be divided into three classes, 
viz.: Missions, Education, and Social Service. 



76 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

2. That the Convention elect annually three Boards to be known 
as the State Board of Missions and Sunday Schools, the Board of 
Education, the Board of Social Service. 

3. That the work of the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools 
shall be conducted as in the past. The Board of Education shall 
have charge of the educational work of the Baptist State Conven- 
tion and the Board of Social Service shall have charge of the work 
of the Convention of a social nature. 

4. That these Boards shall make report of the work done during 
the year at each annual session of the Convention, and that no 
other reports bearing on these subjects shall be made by individuals, 
provided any member of the Convention may have a right to offer 
an amendment to the report of any Board when it is presented to 
the Convention. 

5. That these Boards shall have their reports printed and ready 
for distribution on the first day of the Convention. 

6. That the time of the Convention shall be divided between 
these Boards and that they shall alternate, that is, the Board report- 
ing first this year will report last next year, provided there shall 
be an hour of sixty minutes given to miscellaneous business each 
day of the Convention. 

7. That each Board may divide its report into sub-divisions ac- 
cording to the subjects covered and designate a speaker to lead the 
discussion who shall not consume more than half the time as- 
signed to the subject. 

8. That, if there should arise a question at any time as to which 
Board should undertake any specific work of the Convention, it shall 
be referred to the Convention for settlement. 

9. That the Board of Education and the Board of Social Service 
shall consist of fifteen members each, and that not more than three 
members of any one Board shall come from one Association. 

10. That no person shall be a member of more than one of these 
three Boards at the same time. 

11. That these Boards shall hold at least two regular meetings 
each year and that the failure of any member to attend both of 
these meetings, except on account of sickness, shall disqualify him 
from membership on either one of these Boards the following year. 

12. That the Board of Education shall be located in Durham, 
X. C, and the Board of Social Service shall be located in Greens- 
boro, N. C. 

The following brethren were appointed by the chair on this 
committee: W. C. Barrett, M. L. Kesler, L. Johnson, C. E.

I. N". Loftin offered the following resolution, which was 
referred to the same committee of fifteen named above: 

Be it resolved by this Convention, That the first session of the 
meeting of the Convention shall be for the purpose of organizing, 
and no additional program for the first meeting shall be arranged, 
and all regular officers of this Convention shall be nominated and 
elected by the Convention without the appointment of a nominating 
committee. 

M. L. Kesler offered the following resolutions, which were 
adopted : 

Whereas, the reports of the various Secretaries and Boards of 
institutions are received by the Convention as information and 
spread on its Minutes, be it resolved: 

1. That the custom of appointing an extra committee to write 
another report on the same object be discontinued. 

2. That the respective Boards appoint a speaker to open the dis- 
cussion of each subject, the appointments to be made each year for 
the year following. 

The Convention adjourned, after prayer by T. W. Cham- 
bliss, to attend a concert given by the faculty of Meredith 
College in the College chapel.

The report on Woman's Work was presented by C. W. 
Blanchard, viz. : 



78 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

REPORT ON WOMAN'S WORK. 

Your committee was appointed too late to secure data for bring- 
ing its report up to date. Our statement will, therefore, refer to 
the reports of the Woman's Annual Meeting in March, 1914. Let 
it be understood in the outset that your committee would refrain 
from any appearance of counseling the sisterhood in their kingdom 
service. It were well if we could bring our entire brotherhood to 
sit at their feet and learn the secret of their wonderful progress 
and achievements in their undertakings. In apostolic days our wom- 
en were consoled, "If they would know anything of the workings 
of the kingdom to inquire of their own husbands at home." It is 
a fact, too well established in our day, that if our men would know 
much about the working of the church at home or abroad they 
would have to be taught it by their own wives at home. Also it is 
too often true that the good Christian wife has to use tact and 
strategem to hold the attention of her Christian husband long 
enough to tell him of the great things, so familiar to herself, which 
burden her heart and tax her resources in trying to answer the 
reasonable calls of the kingdom. We are loath to confess that we 
are so blind to the fact that our women are leading us in their de- 
votion to the study of the divine call to the task, and in their prac- 
tical service and sacrifice to bring about the redemption of the lost 
world. 

It is evident, from a study of their working methods, that our 
churches could learn of them the solvent of many of their knotty 
problems. They now hold an exclusive right of way in many essen- 
tial claims of church activity, and yet they always invite our fullest 
fellowship in it all. Their organization alone appreciates the im- 
portance of keeping abreast with the great developments of the 
world-field by mission study classes and special programs of a cul- 
tural nature in their regular monthly meetings. No other organi- 
zation of the church holds regular monthly prayer service for defi- 
nite features of the work. They also hold stated weeks of prayer 
for definite mission fields and workers. 

They alone have assumed the responsibility of organizing into 
active bands all the younger element of the churches for purposes 
of systematic training and Christian activity. Our women are regu- 
lar and generous in their sacrifices to the world-call for the gospel, 
and no less practical and efficient in loqal evangelical and social 
service. In our State they probably control less than one-hundredth 
part of the wealth of the churches, but they lay on the altar more 
than one-third of their gifts. 

One great reason of their constant, amazing and growing strength 
lies in the fact that they do not haggle the principles of democracy 
as our men are sometimes wont to do. They do not cringe with 
fear of losing their personal liberty in the Lord's work by assum- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 79 

ing definite tasks and distributing the same among each other for 
execution. The word apportion does not flaunt before them the 
terror of a frowning ecclesiastical Lord over their liberty, and they 
accept the only true interpretations of a religious democracy as 
being a body in love with a great principle, impelled by a divine 
call to duty, limiting all their own actions and service, to the com- 
mon good of the cause they would serve. We commend their mu- 
tual confidence in service and the regard they hold for the au- 
thority over them of a method they have adopted for conserving 
the best interest of their organization. 

They reported at their last annual meeting 1,072 societies in the 
State, an addition of 206 during the previous year. They have a 
fixed standard of excellence which is not simply a quasi statement 
of ideals, but a mark of development toward which it is expected 
that every society will strive to attain unto. They persistently 
teach and urge the adoption of the Christian law of stewardship, 
and therefore, as might be expected, the most of the church's tithers 
are found among them. Notwithstanding their goal of service is 
always fixed very high it is the exception if they fail to reach it 
and more often to transcend it in real attainments. 

During 1913 the Baptist women of our State raised more than 
$40,000 for the Convention's work. For the year soon to close they 
set as their goal $42,535. It is not to be doubted that in spite of the 
depressing conditions of the times they will raise it. 

Our women generously turn over all their treasure to our boards 
for disbursement, and constantly pray for our discovery of new 
fields and new work for them to do. 

We are now constrained to close with a Pauline appeal to the 
men of our Convention to "help these women which labor with us 
in the gospel." 

We recommend that a larger provision be made for the considera- 
tion of their work in our District Association.

80 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

W. M. Vines was requested by the Convention to have his 
address published in tract form. 

C. E. Maddry, Vice-President of the Home Board in 
North Carolina, was called to the chair. 

TV H. Reddish read the report on Home Missions, viz. : 

REPORT OX HOME MISSIONS. 

The Home Mission Board is located at Atlanta, Georgia, and is 
composed of the secretaries of its various departments, fifteen local 
members, and a Vice-President in each State cooperating with the 
Southern Baptist Convention. These members and officers of the 
Board are elected annually by the Southern Baptist Convention. 

The last conventional year was one of great achievements. The 
receipts for the year were $418,865. The number of converts and 
baptisms exceeded anything heretofore reported for one year, there 
having been 30,861 baptisms, making the total addition to our 
churches 56,747. 

The work of the Board, for convenience and for the highest de- 
gree of efficiency, has been divided into departments of Enlistment, 
Cooperative Work, Mountain School Work, Evangelism, Church 
Building, Work Among Foreigners, Negroes, in Canal Zone, and the 
Department of Publicity. 

ENLISTMENT. 

This department was instituted in July, 1912, and from the very 
first has not lacked for a great and inspiring field. Of the 25,000 
Baptist churches in the Southern Baptist Convention more than 
20,000 are rural, and not fewer than 18,000 of these meet for wor- 
ship only once a month. On any given Sunday over 14,000, more 
than half of our churches, are not open for preaching service. 
Through the efforts of this department the once a month churches 
are brought to twice a month preaching, a more adequate support 
for the pastors is secured, churches are inspired to build good par- 
sonages and erect suitable houses of worship, churches are formed 
into pastoral fields, every-member canvasses are conducted for 
church and mission support, and Sunday Schools are stimulated 
into greater activity. 

( n-OPEHATIVE WORK. 

The Home Mission Board enjoys a close, helpful and vital rela- 
tionship to the State Mission Boards, the District Associations, and 
the individual churches. In States where the State Board has been 
weak and without adequate support, the Home Board has always 
worked directly and continuously to hold up the hands of the State 
Board to the end that it might attain strength to dominate its terri- 
tory for Christ. The Board is at this time cooperating with most 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 81 

of the States in supporting missionary pastors, enlistment workers, 
and in addition it is cooperating with the National Baptist Con- 
vention in evangelizing and training the negro race; each agency 
furnishing part of the money. 

MOUNTAIN SCHOOL WORK. 

This mountain region in which the Board is doing school work 
comprises 176 counties in seven States, and has an area of 76,000 
square miles, embracing a portion of Virginia, North Carolina, 
South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. 

Among this sturdy Anglo-Saxon people the Board has thirty-four 
schools with 156 teachers and 5,218 pupils. In these schools last 
year there were 309 professions of faith in Christ. This work has 
been prosperous and satisfactory from the start, and has never been 
in better condition than at present. The attention of the Board 
at this time is being attracted to the Ozarks, which in Arkansas, 
Missouri and Northeastern Oklahoma have a white population one- 
third as great as that of the Southern Appalachians. A school in 
Arkansas is in process of formation, a beginning in a new and ready 
field. 

EVANGELISM. 

This department was organized in 1906. It has twenty-nine 
evangelists at this time who are winning thousands of souls to 
Christ. Last year's work resulted in 8,414 baptisms, 1,120 volun- 
teers for the ministry and mission work, and 12,248 additions to the 
churches. These evangelists hold meetings in cities, towns, coun- 
try districts, mountains and in mining camps with marvelous re- 
sults. The great campaign last winter in Louisiana was so signally 
blessed that the Baptist work in that great State has been placed 
forever upon higher ground. 

The general effect of this department in all the South has been 
exceedingly helpful, putting our evangelism upon a higher plane. 

CHURCH BUILDING. 

The Southern Baptist Convention in 1912 ordered the Home Board 
to undertake the raising of a million-dollar church building loan 
fund and employ such agencies as might be necessary to accomplish 
the result. In 1913, seventy-three houses of worship were built by 
the aid of this department, while the fund has continued to grow 
steadily and encouragingly. There are in the bounds of the South- 
ern Baptist Convention 3,689 churches without houses of worship. 
One Baptist church in seven has no house of worship. With re- 
turns incomplete from several States, the number of dilapidated 
buildings totaled 4,137. Combining these with the unhoused 
churches, there are 7,999 churches which need aid in erecting ade- 
6 



82 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

quate houses of worship. This condition should arouse every loyal 
Baptist and bring forth a liberal response. 

WORK AMONG FOREIGNERS. 

A million or more immigrants come to our shores annually, and 
about 300,000 of these foreigners return to their native land every 
year. What an opportunity this gives us to preach the gospel to 
the ends of the earth! There are about 3,500,000 foreigners in the 
territory of the Southern Baptist Convention. About two-thirds of 
these people are nominally Roman Catholics, know nothing of our 
history, our institutions and our religion. Roman Catholicism is 
openly boasting its purpose to take America, and it hardly takes 
the trouble to conceal that it means to overthrow religious liberty 
and subvert American institutions, and so to this end they would 
encourage the ignorant immigrant to come to our country. When 
the European war is over there will be larger numbers coming to 
us from that devastated country than have ever been known to come 
from that quarter of the world. Because of the advantages offered 
by the Panama Canal, the agricultural and mining sections of the 
South; and, further, because of the continuous call from our cities 
and towns as well as from the rural districts for more laborers, 
the larger portion of them will locate in the bounds of the Southern 
Baptist Convention. Then let us lengthen the cords and strengthen 
the stakes of the Home Board for this mighty and God-given task. 

THE INDIANS. 

There are about 330,000 Indians in America and 100,000 of them 
are in Oklahoma, where the Board has eighteen missionaries at 
work. We were the first people to take the gospel to the Indians, 
and from the very beginning of our work the blessings of God have 
been upon our efforts, and our churches among these people were 
never in a better condition than at this time. Yet the forces upon 
this great field should be strengthened, that we may bring as quickly 
as possible all these people to Christ. 

THE NEGROES. 

There are about 9,500,000 negroes in the South, and 2,400,000 are 
members of Baptist churches. The Board, in cooperation with the 
National Convention, is helping to support forty colored missionary 
evangelists and also a few teachers and negro schools. This co- 
operation has been helpful to both races. We feel that as the Board 
grows in financial strength it should enlarge its work among these 
people who afford us such vast opportunities for service and to 
whom we have a great and God-given mission. 

CUBA. 

There are about 2,000,000 inhabitants in Cuba who are nominally 
Catholics. The Board began work upon this field in 188G, and we 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 83 

now have upon the island forty missionaries, twenty-seven organ- 
ized churches with 1,818 members, and twenty-six other preaching 
points. Our college and other day schools, as well as our churches 
and Sunday Schools, are in a prosperous condition. 

THE CANAL ZONE. 

Southern Baptists in 1905 opened a mission on this field, being 
the first people to begin a mission work there. God has added his 
blessings to all our efforts at that place. Now that the canal is 
opened and the number of workmen greatly reduced, the number 
of preaching points will also be reduced. Yet larger and better 
equipped church buildings are demanded in order to accommodate 
the people who will be stationed there to operate the canal, to man 
the fortifications at the terminals, to police and look after the gen- 
eral upkeep of the zone. 

THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLICITY. 

This department seeks to put Home Mission facts in the minds 
and hearts of all Southern Baptists. Tracts upon all the depart- 
ments of the work can be had free by asking for them. The Home 
Field is second to no journal of its kind in all the land, and should 
be in every Baptist home in the South. This department has pro- 
duced two books that deserve special commendation, "The Home 
Mission Task" and "Baptist Home Missions." 

Christian Science and Russellism are being preached and taught 
from one end of our country to the other; books and tracts are to 
be had free and without number. The Unitarians, the Universal- 
ists, the Mormons, and the Seventh Day Adventists also belong to 
that class that are spreading doctrines in our midst that would 
take Christ away from us as Saviour and Lord and only leave Him 
as an example, and some of them not even that. The unwise and 
over-emphasis that is being laid on some of the social service pro- 
grams, a good thing in itself but often given the wrong relative ac- 
cent, is becoming dangerous to our people. They are saying in 
effect that man's duty to man takes precedence over man's duty to 
God. To obtain the social mind and to become in harmony with 
the social order is sufficient without the blood of the Christ. They 
talk much about the life that now is but little about the life that is 
to come. Their talk about the life that now is is in terms of science 
and philosophy and not in terms of spiritual life and power. The 
Home Board with its literature stands four-square against all false 
doctrines, and gives to the world light and truth. 

The apportionment for the fiscal year is $461,250. North Caro- 
lina's portion is $40,000, and while this is an increase of $7,290 
over what we raised last year, yet it should be in our easy reach. 
In this time of financial depression let us show ourselves a people 
having faith in God, a people of superb courage and fidelity. Let

us turn our faces towards our tasks with a faith and unflinching 
determination that will secure success.

FRIDAY — Moening Session. 

The Convention opened with the singing of "Am I a Sol- 
dier of the Cross" and prayer by N". H. Shepherd and L. R. 
Pruett. The Minutes of Thursday's sessions were read and 
approved. 

C. E. Brewer read the following report on the Laymen's 
Movement : 

THE LAYMEN'S MOVEMENT. 

We have first of all to record the death of Bro. N. B. Broughton, 
a member of this committee ever since it was first appointed. In 
doing this we wish to bear testimony to his unfailing interest in 
the work of this committee, to the invaluable services he rendered 
it, and to the rare spirit of devotion and sacrifice he manifested in 
this sphere of usefulness as in so many others. 

The aim of the Laymen's Movement is to increase the efficiency 
of the membership of our churches in the management of the affairs 
of the kingdom. In trying to reach this end we recognize the fol- 
lowing essentials: 

1. Organization. This is an age of cooperation. Tasks now are 
too great and programs are too extended for unaided individual 
effort. The ideal before us is to organize every unit of our denomi- 
nation from the Southern Baptist Convention to the individual 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 85 

church. We are glad to reoprt an aggressive campaign by an in- 
telligent and alert committee of the Southern Baptist Convention 
operating in the territory of that organization. Each State Con- 
vention has its committee at work with a view to the organization 
of each association, and through that body to reach each church 
within its bounds. 

2. Study. Permanent success and uninterrupted progress in such 
a movement as this depend upon the intelligence as well as upon 
the consecration of our constituency— on the diffusion of knowledge 
as to the affairs of the kingdom. Our brethren, even though they 
are Christians, cannot control their church affairs in the most 
efficient manner unless they are acquainted with approved methods. 
They will not be interested in missions unless they know missions. 
We commend all our Boards for the efforts they are making to give 
needed information in regard to the various activities of our de- 
nomination and for using efficiency-workers to point the way. 

3. Standard. Men differ widely in their views as to the proper 
standard of Christian devotion and consecration. This applies to 
their personal service as well as to their contributions of money. 
It. is not proposed here to attempt to harmonize divergent views of 
duty, but to call attention to one that is being accepted by increas- 
ing numbers of our members, namely, the tithe as a minimum 
standard of giving. This gives us an ideal to reach without limit- 
ing any who may wish to go beyond it. Some ought to give more 
than the tenth. Many do give more than this. Tithers find joy 
in systematic and proportionate giving and rarely backslide. 

4. Inspiration. The Holy Spirit is the source of our inspiration. 
He comes upon individuals. He comes also upon companies as in 
Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. Our method is to get our men 
together for conference and inspiration. Discussions clarify. Ex- 
changes of experiences and observations encourage the faint-hearted, 
confirm the consistent and conscientious worker, lead to the formu- 
lation of wholesome resolutions and the erection of new and worthy 
standards. For these reasons the mission rally is not only desirable 
but necessary. 

Acting on these general principles, your committee has made 
special effort to organize the work in the several associations, urg- 
ing each one to appoint a committee from among its own men to 
look after this interest of Our Convention, to report annually to the 
Association with needed recommendations. We have encouraged 
the holding of rallies in as many churches as possible, the organi- 
zation of mission study classes for men and the formation of tithing 
bands. The response to our appeals in these directions has been 
encouraging, but there is yet much to be achieved in these particu- 
lars. 

An event of special interest during the year was the Men's Con- 



86 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

vention held March 17 to 19 in the city of Durham. It was a suc- 
cess beyond our most sanguine expectations. The enrollment was 
not only large but representative of all sections of our State. Men 
from all walks in life were there. There were farmers, merchants, 
preachers, educators, manufacturers, lawyers, bankers, editors, phy- 
sicians, traveling men, and representatives from other callings 
present. The total registration, not counting anyone from Durham, 
was 361. 

The program proved to be suggestive and helpful; the addresses 
were well conceived and inspirational; the fellowship was unique 
and elevating; the results, we believe, will prove to be a permanent 
blessing. The hospitality of the good people of Durham and the 
atmosphere they threw around the Convention were all that could 
have been desired. Men in all walks of life contributed nobly and 
unselfishly to the success of the meeting and its program. Our 
thanks are due and are hereby extended to every one who took part. 
Speakers from our own State rendered distinguished service. Four 
brethren from abroad were there and placed us under obligations 
to them for the great assistance they rendered; Dr. J. T. Hender- 
son, Chairman of the Laymen's Movement Committee of the South- 
ern Baptist Convention; President E. M. Poteat, of Furman Uni- 
versity; Dr. B. D. Gray, of the Home Mission Board, and Dr. W. H. 
Smith, of the Foreign Mission Board. Mention ought to be made 
of the superb work done by Bro. John Jeter Hurt as Chairman of 
the Publicity Committee, and by Dr. Hubert McNeill Poteat as 
leader of the music. 

The success of this meeting shows that there is a field for such 
a convention of Baptists in North Carolina. Indeed such gather- 
ings seem to present an unparalleled opportunity to develop and 
unify our forces. It is the opinion of your committee that a Men's 
Convention in this State should be held at least once in two years. 

We respectfully make the following recommendations: 

1. That each church be requested to provide for mission study 
for men. We suggest the appointment of a committee in each 
church to cooperate with the pastor in arranging for this exercise 
at convenient periods. 

2. That each church be requested to appoint a committee on effi- 
ciency to make an every-member canvass- at the beginning of the 
year with a view to securing systematic and symmetrical contribu- 
tions both for church expenses and benevolence, and to devise ways 
and means of enabling it to meet its obligations to its own com- 
munity and to the kingdom at large. 

3. That the tithe be accepted as the minimum standard of giving 
and that we encourage the formation of tithing bands. 

4. That each association be asked to provide the necessary com- 
mittee or committees to bring these matters to the attention of 
each church within its bounds. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 87 

The report was discussed by C. E. Brewer, C. J. Thomp- 
son, T. W. Chambliss, B. Cade, C. H. Norris, K. E. White, 
C. A. Upchurch and J. F. Love, and adopted. 

The following Laymen's Committee for the ensuing year 
was elected: C. E. Brewer, F. P. Hobgood, and B. D. Cald- 
well. 

The following report, submitted by A. E. Brown, was or- 
dered to be spread on the Minutes : 

To the North Carolina State Convention. 

I submit a report of the nine mountain schools which are located 
in North Carolina. 

In these nine schools there were last session 1,634 students. Five 
hundred and one of these were boarding students. There were em- 
ployed in these schools 48 teachers. 

The fall term of the present session shows 1,152 students enrolled, 
581 of whom are boarding students, and that we had 52 teachers 
employed. 

Since the last report the following improvements have been made: 

Mountain View Institute has finished the Kilby Home for Girls 
at a cost, including furnishings, of $7,500. This building represents 
largely the contribution of Mr. J. S. Kilby and wife. This school 
has now under construction an administration building which will 
cost about $7,000 when completed. The school owns about fifty 
acres of land. 

At Round Hill Academy an indebtedness, which has been hanging 
over the school for some years, has been partially removed and a 
new boys' dormitory erected at a cost of $3,000. 

At Fruitland Institute a new administration building is under 
course of construction which will cost about $10,000. 

At the Yancey Institute a new boys' dormitory has been erected. 
This gives two buildings for boys. The new building is equipped 
with many of the modern conveniences, and represents largely the 
liberality of Mr. E. F. Watson. 

At the Haywood Institute about $500 has been spent in improving 
the buildings, which included the painting of the Wilkins' Home 
for Girls and reflooring the old part of the administration build- 
ing and other improvements, which have added much to the con- 
venience as well as to the appearance of the plant. 

At Sylva Institute about $1,000 was spent for improvements dur- 
ing the vacation. Only about one-half of this has been paid for. 
These improvements have greatly improved appearances at this 
school. 

At the Murphy Institute we have introduced rug weaving and 



88 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

truck farming. These features were introduced with a double pur- 
pose of assisting pupils in making their way and giving them some 
practical training. 

At Mars Hill College, through the kindness of Rev. O. E. Sams' 
congregation at Lynchburg, Va., arrangements have been made for 
a new boys' dormitory. This dormitory will enable us to board 
about fifty more students under the personal care and supervision 
of the teachers of the school. 

J. M. Arnette submitted the report of the Ministers' Relief 
Board and the Treasurer's report, viz. : 

REPORT OF BAPTIST MINISTERS' RELIEF BOARD. 

In a great speech before this Convention at Winston-Salem on 
"Why the Ministers' Relief Board" Dr. Chas. E. Brewer said, "As 
long as there are men upon the firing line the ambulance corps shall 
be needed." Hence this Board does not come with the report of a 
finished work, nor does it claim that the "beginning of the end" 
is in sight. Five new names of those recently upon the firing line 
have been added to the list of beneficiaries this year. There are 
applications at every meeting of the Board, and we may expect this 
work to assume larger and larger proportions. First, because 
preachers' salaries have not increased in proportion to the high 
cost of living. Second, because there are larger demands upon the 
preacher's income than ever before. In the third place, because 
more of our ministers than ever before are giving their entire time 
to preaching the gospel. This means that they cannot so easily 
make a living, when they shall have reached that age when they 
are no longer wanted as pastors, as the preacher who has com- 
bined preaching and farming or preaching and some other occupa- 
tion all the while. 

It is the recognized purpose of this Board that no Baptist min- 
ister in North Carolina, who has come to want because of having 
given his life to preaching the gospel, shall suffer when age or af- 
fliction comes upon him. But we ought to have a larger purpose 
than simply to care for those falling upon the "firing line," as noble 
as such a purpose is. This Board ought more and more to be an 
appeal and a pledge to those just enlisting to go to the front. It 
ought to be an inspiration to the young preacher of today. Our 
sympathy and our contributions for this work ought to be such as 
to move the young preacher to put himself and all his powers into 
the work of the ministry, realizing that if want shall come because 
of his full consecration to the work the denomination is pledged 
to keep "the wolf from his door." Thirty-seven beneficiaries have 
received aid this year. Only one has died since last Convention, 
though they usually fall like autumn leaves. Five thousand and 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 89 

eight dollars and fifty-two cents has been contributed for the sup- 
port of this work. This is nearly $500 less than last year, because 
there has been no pressing appeal, no special cry of need, and no 
representative in the field. We hope that the Christmas offering 
this year may be much larger than ever before. Brethren, think 
of yourselves as "in the shoes" of these old preachers — shoes that 
pinch and let the frost bite — then present the cause in a worthy 
way and take an offering at or near Christmas. But we earnestly 
plead that this offering be not allowed to interfere with the amount 
of the regular offering to this object. If the Christmas offering be 
used to pay the church's pledge for this work the work is likely 
to lose rather than gain.

M. L. Kesler, for the Committee on Social Service, sub- 
mitted the following report : 

REPORT OP COMMITTEE ON SOCIAL SERVICE. 

Your Committee on Social Service, appointed by resolution of the 
last State Convention, begs leave to submit the following report: 

We believe that our Convention, as an organized body of Chris- 
tian people, should take a deep and abiding interest in the complete 
welfare of our entire commonwealth. This interest is coining to be 
expressed technically as "Social Service." You may prefer calling 
it Christianity applied to life and conditions about us. By whatever 
name the work must be done. 

Social betterment should not be considered a by-product of Chris- 
tianity, but a direct product, on the principle that "faith without 
works is dead." The Baptists of North Carolina should take a 
leading interest in such work, first for the reason that we have 
more people within the range of our life than any other denomina- 
tion; and also for the reason that it is demanded by our State Mis- 
sion ideals. If every neighborhood and hamlet should hear our 
gospel, even so should every phase of our State's life feel the appli- 
cation of its power. 

Nor is it in any way a new conception of religion that we present. 
Christ Himself, healing the sick, rebuking wickedness in high 
places, and relieving human distress in every form, set the first 
great example of social service, and those who assert that preaching 
alone completely fulfils the church's mission deny the power of the 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 91 

example of the Son of God Himself. It is a dangerous and deaden- 
ing heresy. That law and culture alone will renew society is but 
the other end of the same heresy. It is the duty of the Baptists to 
combat both. 

North Carolina Baptists have already made an enviable record in 
caring for dependent children, and in temperance reform. They are 
also interesting themselves in prison reform, peace movement, and 
the improvement of conditions affecting child workers. Now that 
our battle line may cover the whole front of our life we would make 
the following recommendations: 

1. That, in addition to our service to helpless children, we under- 
take the study of our duty to the widow, which is the other wing of 
our orphanage work, "the fatherless and the widow" forming our 
golden text. There is great waste in taking the child from the 
widow in good health able to work and worthy in life. Not only can 
she care for the child with least cost, but this sacred circle and 
motherhood obligation should not be violated. In some States, wid- 
ows are pensioned by the State. We are not ready to recommend 
this. But the apostles in the early days did recommend that deacons 
be appointed and this was suggested as one of their clearly denned 
duties. We may not be able at once to make suggestions in detail, 
but we plead for a return to this early form of applied Christianity 
and would leave it on the hearts of this Convention to be taken up 
again. 

2. That as pastors and churches we cooperate in every proper way 
with the Anti-Saloon League in suppressing the whiskey traffic, open- 
ing our churches on proper occasions to its representatives, always 
with the clear understanding that there shall be no partisan political 
significance in such addresses. 

3. That we urge our pastors and other church workers to take more 
active interest in the North Carolina Conference for Social Service, 
an organization representing Christians in all denominations which 
is grappling with many great problems and consistently insisting 
that social service must not be divorced from church activity but 
given to the world as the expression of the Christ-spirit. 

4. Remembering the example of the Master in healing all manner 
of suffering, we suggest that our churches as far as practicable in- 
terest themselves in health betterment through visiting nurses 
sanitary reforms, and enlisting the people in God's name in the war 
against the great white plague and all forms of disease. 

5. That we encourage "Social Center" work, such as has been in- 
augurated by the Tabernacle Church in Raleigh, thereby furnishing 
wholesome conditions of life for working girls and students who 
come as undefended strangers within the gates of our cities and 
larger towns, demanding in their new and strange environment the 
loving guardianship of the church and Christian people. 



92 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

6. As a means of carrying light to thousands who now sit in 
intellectual darkness in our State, and as a means of opening the 
Bible to thousands to whom it must otherwise remain forever 
closed, we urge that our churches and Sunday Schools, reverting to 
ancient custom, arrange everywhere to lend aid to the present cam- 
paign for moonlight schools and other means of educating grown 
men and women now unable to read the Word of God. 

7. Finally, we recommend that a Committee on Social Service be 
made one of the permanent committees of this Convention.

Clarence Poe, 
John A. Oates, 
M. L. Kesler, 

Committee. 

The report was discussed by M. L. Kesler, Clarence Poe, 
and J. Y. Joyner. 

The following resolution, offered by W. L. Poteat, was 
adopted : 

Resolved, that this Convention endorse the principle of the regu- 
lation of the labor of women and children in the interest of the race, 
and commend to all the people a practical interest in this funda- 
mental social problem. 

J. A. Campbell read the following report on Temperance: 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TEMPERANCE. 

Never in the history of our country have temperance lovers had 
so much to give them heart. There was a time when they were 
laughed at by the whiskey people, when public opinion made it hard 
to be a devout advocate of temperance legislation. Because of this, 
many of those who sought political honors were afraid to advocate 
temperance men and measures. That day is passed. 

In our. State no man can hope to be elected to any place of honor 
and trust, by any political party, if he shall advocate the whiskey 
business. We thank God for this change in public opinion and for 
all men and all agencies that have helped in bringing in this glorious 
day. 

We rejoice that this same spirit is spreading rapidly throughout 
our nation and the blessed hope of nation-wide prohibition at an 
early day is the cheering outlook for us. In 1906 there were only 
three States in the prohibition column — Maine, Kansas, and North 
Dakota. Today there are fourteen States in which we have prohibi- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 93 

tion, five of which have been added during this year. These States 
have a population of twenty million people, about one-fifth of the 
population of our entire country. Many other States have much dry 
territory. Several more States are to vote on the question in the 
near future and the prospects are for certain victory in nearly every 
one of them. 

The war in Europe, and the action of Russia, Germany, France and 
England in opposition to the use of liquor by their men in the field, 
the pronouncement of Russia that no further intoxicants shall be 
manufactured or sold in that country, give powerful impetus to the 
prohibition work in our own country. 

Industrial enterprises have given a tremendous blow to the whis- 
key business by putting a premium on labor done by sober people. 

The Medical Society of North Carolina and the ablest men in the 
medical world everywhere have helped along our cause by dealing 
death blows to the whiskey business. Let us take heart, but let 
us not be overconfident. The whiskey people are on the run. God 
is with us and now is our time to press the battle. There is much 
that each of us can do singlehanded and alone in helping to save 
our fellowmen from the curse of whiskey, but there are many 
things in which we must cooperate. The fight is for God and 
men, and we must seek His help and their help. We need to pray 
and pay, to plan and to perform, to vote for men and measures 
needed in ridding our nation of this greatest curse. 
We recommend: 

First, that all our people who can do so shall attend the conven- 
tion of temperance people to be held in Raleigh, January 13-14, 1915. 
Second, that we give hearty endorsement to the work of the Anti- 
Saloon League in our State and nation, pledging ourselves loyally 
to support the work. 

Third, that we petition the next Legislature of North Carolina to 
enact such legislation as shall prohibit the shipment of liquor into 
our State. 

Fourth, that we petition our representatives in Congress to use 
their best endeavors to secure the passage of the Sheppard-Hobson 
bill now pending in Congress. 

Fifth, that this Convention appoint a committee of three to pre- 
sent these petitions to the proper committees in our Legislature and 
in our national Congress.

Committee. 



94 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

T. J. Taylor, O. L. Stringfield and R. L. Davis spoke on the 
report, which was adopted. 

Livingston Johnson offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted: 

Resolved, That this Convention express its high appreciation of the 
services of Rev. O. L. Stringfield as Assistant Superintendent of the 
Anti-Saloon League, and that it commend his services to the churches 
of the Convention. 

The following committee was appointed to go, or send a 
substitute, to Washington, D. C, December 18th, in the in- 
terest of temperance legislation: Livingston Johnson, O. L. 
Stringfield, and W. L. Poteat. 

The following resolution was offered by J. T. Kiddick, and 
was adopted : 

Whereas, We believe that the public welfare demands a more 
careful scrutiny of the history of those endeavoring to procure 
license to be married; and whereas, we, as ministers of the Gospel of 
Christ, must be governed by the Scriptures concerning the marriage 
of divorced parties; and whereas, we earnestly desire to conserve the 
interests of the State as they are bound up with the Christian home: 

Therefore, resolved. That we respectfully request the General As- 
sembly of North Carolina to meet in January, 1915, to so amend the 
statute prescribing the form of marriage license as to require under 
oath from the person applying for license, the condition of those to 
be married, condition to be answered by the word "single," the word 
"widow," the word "divorced," as the case may demand: and in case 
the answer is "divorced," to require a statement of the ground on 
which the divorce was procured in the legal term applicable, and 
the State and county in which and the time at which procured. 

Respectfully, J. T. Riddick. 

Edward Long gave notice that he would offer a change in 
the Constitution a year hence to the effect that the officers be 
elected at the close rather than at the beginning of the Con- 
vention. 

W. A. Smith presented the following report on Obituaries, 
which was adopted: 

REPORT ON OBITUARIES. 

Since our last Convention many of our brethren and sisters have 
gone to their reward. Twenty-two of our preachers and many of our 



MINUTES OF SESSION 19H- 95 

deacons and leading laymen, and sisters and mothers in Israel, not 
a few, have passed over the river. Some of these have been promi- 
nent in the affairs of the Kingdom and their loss is keenly felt by 
this body. Others, not so prominent and widely known, have 
wrought well in their respective churches and communities and are 
sorely missed there. 

In this obituary list, there are not a few whose lives and works 
deserve lengthy mention. Your committee, however, recognizes the 
fact that, with the limited space allowed, the briefest mention of 
many must suffice. Their record is in heaven. They rest now from 
their labors and their works do follow them. 

After thirty years of faithful ministry in Cleveland and adjoining 
counties, Rev. T. J. Moss died at his home in Forest City, North 
Carolina, on January 8, 1914, in the sixty-third year of his age. He 
was an earnest preacher and faithful pastor. He did quite a good 
deal of evangelistic work among the churches of his section. 

Rev. Martin J. Leach, of Lassiter's Mill, Randolph County, died 
sometime in May. He was about fifty years of age when he began 
to preach. He may have Jacked in the learning of the schools, but 
not in the zeal, courage, and self-sacrificing spirit for his Master's 
cause. He leaves four splendid Baptist churches, in what was once 
a destitute section of his county, as monuments of his faithful 
service. 

Rev. T. G. Wood died at the home of his son-in-law, Mr. Harod 
Faison, near Winton, on January 29, 1914. He was born in Curri- 
tuck County, North Carolina, July 20, 1852. He was a graduate of 
Richmond College, Richmond, Virginia. He held pastorates in Suf- 
folk and Franklin, Virginia, and of several churches in the Chowan 
and West Chowan associations. His last pastorate was that of 
Spring Hill Church in Scotland County, which he served with 
marked success for five years. Brother Wood was indeed a good 
minister of Jesus Christ. He was a man of scholarship and culture, 
who had convictions that he feared not to defend. He was popular 
among the people he served and was greatly loved by them. 

On January 15, 1914, Rev. W. B. Doughtry died at his home in 
Tarboro, North Carolina. He became pastor of the Baptist Church 
of Tarboro on January 1, where he preached one Sunday and con- 
ducted one prayer service, and then, after a brief illness of pneu- 
monia, fell on sleep. He was reared in Isle of Wight County, Vir- 
ginia. He graduated at Richmond College and Crozer Seminary. 
He held pastorates at Cape Charles, Blackstone, and Meherin, in 
Virginia. For two years he was pastor of the Baptist Church at 
Plymouth, North Carolina, having come from Plymouth to Tarboro. 
A strong and faithful young man has suddenly fallen, but his life 
was not in vain. 

Rev. W. H. Sparks, of Yancey County, died on August 25, 1914. 
He was a native of Cleveland County. He was a member of Mount 



96 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

Pleasant Church of Yancey County, which he had served as pastor. 
Ho was a man of cheerful spirit and faithful to his Master. 

At his home in Clinton, North Carolina, on June 25, 1914, Rev. 
Richard C. Sandling died. He was born December 5, 1849, at Little 
Rock, Arkansas, and came with his parents to this State in his 
early youth. He graduated at Wake Forest College in 1875. The 
greater part of his ministerial life was spent in the Eastern, Neuse- 
Atlantic, and Wilmington associations. He was an able preacher 
and a man of strong convictions and good judgment. 

Rev. G. W. Coppedge, of the Tar River Association, died of paral- 
ysis on October 9, 1914, in the seventieth year of his age. During 
his useful ministry he held pastorates in the counties of Nash, 
Wake, Franklin, Warren, Vance and Harnett. He was a man of 
strong convictions, "full of faith and the Holy Ghost." 

Rev. Joseph L. Bennett, of Marshville, Union County, died sud- 
denly while conducting a funeral on February 26, 1914. His was a 
long and useful ministry, the greater part of which was spent in 
Union County. He said not long before he died that he had bap- 
tized thirty-five hundred people. He was. one of those tireless and 
energetic ministers who spared not himself that he might be found 
faithful. 

At his home in Oxford, North Carolina, in the ninety-third year 
of his age, Rev. Robert I. Devin passed to his reward. He was born 
in Henry County, Virginia, August 14, 1822, and died August 31, 
1914. He had been a member of the Baptist Church for seventy-six 
years. For sixty-eight years he had been a minister of the Gospel. 
He settled in Oxford in 1848, and soon organized the First Baptist 
Church of that town. He held pastorates at Louisburg, North 
Carolina, and Clarksville, Virginia, and during the Civil War did 
missionary work in Forsyth County at his own charges, but the 
greater part of his ministry was spent among the country churches 
of Granville County. He organized Mountain Creek and Annis 
Chapel churches and was pastor of Grassy Creek Church for forty- 
two years. He baptized over twenty-five hundred persons during 
his long and useful ministry. 

Rev. Pinkney Oliver was born in Guilford County, North Carolina, 
June 19, 1838, and died October 29, 1914. He was a minister of the 
Gospel for fifty-five years. He served churches in the counties of 
Guilford, Forsyth, Davidson, Yadkin, Surry and Stokes. He was an 
independent thinker and always loyal to his convictions. His was a 
long and faithful service in the vineyard of his Master. 

Rev. W. G. King died at the home of his son, Rev. T. H. King, 
pastor First Baptist Church, Mount Airy, North Carolina, on May 26, 
1914. His devoted wife preceded him to the glory world on April 
3, 1914. Brother King was a native of Wake County. He was bap- 
tized into the fellowship of Ephesus Church by Rev. Patrick W. 
Dowd early in life. He was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1878. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1914. 97 

He served churches in the Sandy Creek, Neuse-Atlantic, and Little 
River associations in North Carolina, and in the Mecklenburg Asso- 
ciation in Virginia. On account of failing health, he had preached 
occasionally only for the last five years. Brother King was a man 
of firm convictions and sincere devotion to his high calling. 

At his home in Franklin County, on June 28, 1914, Rev. James R. 
Jones died. He was a native of Franklin County and a graduate of 
Wake Forest College. He held pastorates at several important 
points in North Carolina and Virginia. Owing to poor health, he 
gave up active work in the pastorate and settled down in his native 
county where his last years were spent. 

Rev. John Barnes, of Severn, North Carolina, died on June 29(?), 
1914. He was a member of Severn Baptist Church and held in 
warm esteem by those who knew him. 

Rev. Jacob F. Sams was a native of Tennessee. He was born 
March 23, 1851, and died at his home, Cane River, in Yancey 
County, North Carolina, on January 20, 1914. He spent most of his 
life in this State. He was well and favorably known throughout the 
mountain section of this State, where he spent some thirty years of 
his faithful ministry. His pastorates were in Yancey, Buncombe 
and Madison counties, having been pastor of almost every Baptist 
church in Yancey County during his ministry. 

Rev. Claude E. Gower died at Jacksonville, Florida, 1914. He 
was in the fifty-fifth year of his age. He was a native of Wake 
County, North Carolina. He graduated from Wake Forest College 
in 1881 and spent one year at the Southern Baptist Theological 
Seminary. He held pastorates at Graham, Mocksville, Mt. Olive, and 
Warsaw, also was pastor of country churches in the West Chowan 
Association and in Lincoln County. " Owing to a nervous break- 
down, he was not in the active pastorate for the last few years of 
his life. 

At the ripe old age of eighty years, Rev. E. N. Gwynn, of Yadkin 
County, where he had spent so much of his ministry, fell on sleep 
October 21, 1914. He was a good pastor and a faithful minister of 
Jesus Christ. 

Rev. G. W. Harmon, of Ore Hill, passed through the gates of death 
on May 16, 1914, at St. Leo Hospital, Greensboro. The greater part 
of his useful ministry was spent in the old Sandy Creek Association. 
He was a true man who feared God and eschewed evil. 

Rev. C. M. Ervin, of Hickory, one of our State missionaries, was 
instantly killed on Sunday, August 23, 1914, in a runaway near 
Bostic. Brother Ervin was a faithful preacher of the Word and held 
in highest esteem in his section. 

Rev. James A. Smith died at his howe in Wilmington, August 28, 
1914. He was born at Red Springs, April 6, 1846. He was educated

institution he graduated in 1871. He also graduated at the Theo- 
logical Seminary at Greenville, South Carolina. The greater part 
of his ministerial life was given to the country churches of South- 
eastern North Carolina. He was a regular contributor to the North 
Carolina Baptist for a number of years, under the nom de plume of 
Senex. He was a faithful preacher who fought for temperance, edu- 
cation and civic righteousness and was also a winner of souls. 

Among the long list of our departed laymen there are many who 
have been greatly used of the Master in the furtherance of His king- 
dom, but the barest mention of them will have to suffice. 

John P. Cannady, an honored and useful member of Enon Church 
in Granville County, died January 26, 1914, in the seventy-third year 
of his age. He was a student of Wake Forest College from 1858 to 
1860. He was a Confederate soldier of Company K, of the 55th North 
Carolina regiment. A brave soldier and good man has gone to his 
reward. 

In the seventy-ninth year of his age, at his home in Oxford, Janu- 
ary 26, 1914, A. C. Parham entered into eternal rest. His life was

born December 12, 1843. Graduated from Wake Forest College in

gone to his reward. 

Captain J. S. Bridges died at his home in Catawba County on 
April 30, 1914, in the eighty-fourth year of his age. He was a 
fleacon in the Baptist church at Catawba and for many years was 
the efficient Sunday School superintendent. The Baptist church

liberality. He was the father of Mrs. D. P. Bridges, the wife of 
Rev. 1). P. Bridges, of Fairmont, North Carolina. 

Deacon L. W. Highsmith. father of Professor Highsmith of Wake

William B. Scott, a highly respected member and faithful deacon 
of the Morrisville Baptist Church, died at his home in Cedar Fork

to his reward. 

Person County lost one of its most substantial and prominent 
citizens, and the Ephesus Baptist Church one of its most faithful

forty years a deacon in his church. 

J. A. Shugart of Yadkin County, died at his home near Boonville,

On March 2, 1914, George Houston Moore, at the age of eighty-

Baptist Church of Sanford. He was an esteemed citizen and a 
faithful Christian.

tendent of the Sunday School.

of Bro. N. T. Bowden, which occurred at his home in Charlotte on 
April 11, 1914. He was a good citizen and a faithful Christian. 

Needham Bryant Broughton died in Philadelphia, May 26, 1914. 
His going is a distinct loss, not only to his own church and denomi- 
nation, but also to the State and city in which he wrought so nobly 
for so many years. He was a charter member in the organization, 
in 1874, of the Swain Street Baptist Church, now Tabernacle, of 
Raleigh. He was chosen deacon at its organization and held that 
office until his death. In 1876 he was elected superintendent of the 
Sunday School, which position he held for more than thirty-seven 
years. It would not be far amiss to say he wrought his noblest 
work as superintendent of the Tabernacle Sunday School. He was 
also a great worker in almost every line of Christian service. There 
is scarcely an important board or committee for the prosecution of 
our State denominational work in which his name did not appear. 
At the time of his death he had been Secretary of this Convention 
for thirty-one years. He was a strong and wise leader. North Caro- 
lina and, in no mean degree, the South, felt the force of his life 
and especially so in Sunday School work. 

Prof. W. H. Ragsdale died at his home in Greenville, North Caro- 
lina, March 27, 1914. He graduated from Wake Forest College in

Greenville.

ing member of the Baptist Church there, passed to his reward in

There are many others of our brethren who have passed away

space to make. Among these are the following: John Sampson 
Page, October 3, 1914, for fifty-two years a faithful member of the 
Stedman Church; John M. Prim, of Holloway's Church, on Sep- 
tember 11, 1914; William I. Lane, an honored deacon of the First

There are doubtless scores of other brethren and sisters, who were 
faithful in the service of their Master, who have gone to their re- 
ward during the past year, whose names do not occur in this report 
because the writer lacked the necessary information to make men- 
tion of them.

Associational Statistics 



Names of churches having preaching every Sunday are printed in small caps; those having preach ng two Sun 
days each month are printed in italics. Some Associations give no data on these points. Inquiry has been made, as 
far as time would permit, to secure this information. The total contributions ot the entire church (including Sunday 
School, Woman's Missionary Society, Sunbeams, etc.) are meant to be included for the various objects indicated. For 
the figures herewith submitted the Statistical Secretary is chiefly and gratefully indebted to the clerks of the respective 
Associations. 

The lateness of the arrival of many of these reports renders accuracy and completeness impossible.

Statistical Summary 



The average reader has not the time to study statistical tables in 
detail. I venture here to summarize the facts of the preceding pages 
as nearly as we can in a short space. 

In closing this my seventh annual report as Statistical Secretary, 
I wish again to thank the busy men as clerks and pastors for their 
cooperation. I have used such information as was furnished by 
associational clerks. Many of these reports came in during the last 
days of November, rendering completeness impossible. I failed to 
get reports from the clerks of the Alleghany, Brunswick, Brier 
Creek, Elkin, Liberty-Ducktown, Stony Fork, and Surry Associa- 
tions. All these except the Brier Creek and Surry were a year be- 
hind in the last report. I use 1913 data for them. 

In all Associations reporting before November 20 we sent urgent 
appeals and return post cards to churches which did not report. We 
sent out letters to nearly 400 such churches, and have received re- 
plies from 170 of these. Of course this adds to completeness and 
accuracy. Surely there are many errors, but we have striven ear- 
nestly to secure full and correct reports. 

These facts are taken from associational reports. These close at 
dates from May to November, while the Convention year closes No- 
vember 30th. Surely then no one would expect the amounts reported 
in the statistical tables to be the same as in Treasurer Durham's 
annual report. 

AGGREGATES. 

There are on the rolls of the 64 Associations, 2,093 churches. By 
using data for 1913 from seven Associations named above and from 
74 chuches in other Associations, we report a membership of 
256,599. There are 29 other churches carried on associational rolls 
that have not reported membership in from two to seven years. 
These possibly have a membeship of 1,500. The reported gain in 
membership is 11,060, and in churches 39. 

It has been a great year in baptisms. There were reported 14,716, 
a gain of 1,452 over last year, which was the largest to date. In 
737 churches no baptisms were reported. If these had come to the 
average of others, there would have been over 22,000 baptisms. It 
ought to be said that many churches not reporting baptisms are 
among the largest in membership. 

The amount reported for Convention objects is as follows: State 
Missions, $49,494.83; Home Missions, $32,893.62; Foreign Missions, 
$51,365.09; Sunday School Missions, $3,188.54; Orphanage, $47,837.86: 
Ministerial Education, $5,843.36; Ministerial Relief, $5,036.38; total, 
$195,659.68. This is an aggregate gain of $5,892.97. In Sunday 
ool Missions many churches report "Missions in the Sunday 
School" for Sunday School Missions. In this way over $1,000 was

reported that came into Treasurer Durham's hands for the other 
Mission objects. 

CONTRIBUTING AND NON-CONTRIBUTING CHURCHES. 

It is well to consider "liabilities" as well as "assets." Many 
churches are doing nothing for the several objects. These are "liabil- 
ities" of the denomination until we induce them to cooperate with 
the other churches in the larger affairs of the Kingdom. When 
studying the non-contributing churches, remember I have included 
therein the 74 churches whose 1913 membership was used and the 29 
churches for which there is no data. It would be fair to add about 
50 to each first group and subtract the same from the last. 

Below we give the number of churches that gave to the several 
Convention objects and those that did not. The first number is 
churches contributing to the several objects and the last those re- 
porting no contributions: To some Convention object, 1,744—349; 
to State Missions, 1,642—451; to Home Missions, 1,461—632; to For- 
eign Missions, 1,522—571; to Sunday School Missions, 588—1,505; to 
Orphanage, 1,548—545; to Ministerial Education, 738—1,355; to Min- 
isterial Relief, 927 — 1,166. 

ASSOCIATIONS LEADING. 

We give first and second place in each item. Number of churches: 
Chowan and Roanoke, 60 each; Pilot Mt, 59. Membership of 
churches: West Chowan, 12,537; Chowan, 10,698. Baptisms: South 
Fork, 716; Pilot Mt., 690. Number of Sunday Schools: West Chowan, 
67; Chowan and Roanoke, 63 each. Membership of Sunday Schools:' 
West Chowan, 7,566; Mount Zion, 7,561. Contributions to State Mis- 
sions: Roanoke, $4,318.35; West Chowan, $3,183.37. To Home Mis- 
sions: West Chowan, $2,636.75; Mecklenburg-Cabarrus, $2,025.64; 
To Foreign Missions: Central, $3,425.18; West Chowan, $3,349.19. 
To Sunday School Missions: West Chowan, $259.46; Mt. Zion, 
$203.46. To Orphanage: Roanoke, $3,956.21; West Chowan! 
$3,927.75. To Ministerial Education: West Chowan, $500.70; Mt. 
Zion, $448.82. To Ministerial Relief: Mt. Zion, $449.19; West Cho- 
wan, $294.97. To all objects: West Chowan, $14,152.12; Roanoke 
$13,125.76. 

PER CAPITA CONTRIBUTIONS. 

For all Convention objects, the per capita is 76 cents, a loss of one 
cent, as compared with 1913. Fourteen Associations have averaged 
over $1.00 per member as follows: Roanoke, $2.12; Central, $1.95 
Pee Dee $1.81; Piedmont, $1.68; Flat River, $1.37; Robeson' $1.36 
Raleigh, $1.32; Mecklenburg-Cabarrus, $1.33; Buncombe $131 
Neuse-Atlantic, $1.31; Beulah, $1.25; Mt. Zion, $1.15; West Chowan, 
$1.13; Eastern, $1.05. Nine other Associations averaged above the 
average of the State and less than $1.00 per member as follows alpha- 
betically: Bladen, 80c; Chowan, 77c; Libertv, 77c; Little River

87c; Pilot Mt., 99c; Sandy Creek, 83c; Tar River, 82c; Wilming- 
ton, 85c 

OTHER AVERAGES. 

Of the 2,064 churches that report membership the average is 124. 
Of the 1,356 reporting baptisms the average is 11. Of the contribut- 
ing churches to the Convention objects the average is as follows: 
State Missions, $30.14; Home Missions, $22.51; Foreign Missions, 
$33.75; Sunday School Missions, $5.42; Orphanage, $30.90; Minis- 
terial Education, $7.92; Ministerial Relief, $5.43; all objects, $112.19. 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

Church clerks make out the reports to the Association and often 
the Sunday School Secretary fails to make his report. In this way 
Sunday School data is less complete than other church data. By 
securing data through return postal cards from more than 170 
churches the facts are approximately correct. Last year there were 
1,934 schools; this year, 2,052; a gain of 118. There are this year 
111 branch schools reported. At least 75 new schools were organized. 
The total membership is now 201,224; a gain of 10,443 over last year. 
There seems now to be 152 churches without schools. Possibly 50 
of these have suspended all public worship but have not disbanded. 
Others have unreported schools. There are in fact now not over 75 
churches where Sunday Schools could reasonably be organized arid 
maintained. The Sunday Schools gave last year at least $40,000, be- 
sides all Sunday School expenses used at home. 

COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS. 

There are three colleges and fifteen secondary schools owned and 
controlled by the denomination. The property of these, including 
endowment, is valued at $1,394,210. Last year there were 194 officers 
and teachers and 3,748 pupils in these institutions. Failing to hear 
from president or principal we had to use year-old data for Chowan 
College, Boiling Springs School, and South Fork Institute. Besides 
these 18 institutions there are six others under private control and 
considered Baptist schools. They are worth over $150,000, and have 
at least 45 teachers and 1,000 pupils. 

woman's work. 

There are now 1,072 societies actively engaged in Mission work, 
this number including Woman's Missionary Societies, Young Wom- 
an's Auxiliaries, Sunbeams, and Royal Ambassadors. These are in 
52 Associations, and in 45 of these are Vice-Presidents to advance 
and direct the work. Robeson leads in number of societies, 75 being 
enlisted in active work. West Chowan reports 49; Eastern, 45; Mt. 
Zion, 43. 

The contributions for 1913-1914 amounted to $40,255.13. Mecklen-

LIST OF ORDAINED MINISTERS 



Reported Pastors Marked Thus*. 

In revising this list we have used minutes for 1914 or written re- 
ports from clerks from 57 Associations. In the other seven we have 
tried to verify the old report, so that every Association has been 
checked as nearly to date as possible. You can find many names 
have not been recorded. Some associational clerks fail to give any 
postoffice. The name is valueless without this. On account of 
change of postoffice, deaths, ordinations, coming in of new pastors 
from other states, and other changes it has required 596 corrections 
to the roll of 1913. 

Of course there are errors now, but we have tried faithfully to 
make the list correct. Any information leading to accuracy will be 
appreciated. If a minister's name fails to appear I shall be glad to 
insert it if information is given. If any one is enrolled who ought 
not to be there, let some one give this information also.
